Saturday, September 23, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, the only mail I got yesterday was your cute birthday card. Seems as tho your mail is being delivered like mine is you you. Namely, everyone’s else gets here first. I’ve already got Es’s and Bernadine’s cards a few days back. I’ll be glad when I can tell you what IContinue reading “Saturday, September 23, 1944”

Friday, September 22, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, I’m back down to v-mail again. Haven’t got any more air mail stamps so it will have to be these for awhile. Didn’t get any letters yesterday but I wrote everyone that I owed one to. We got a partial pay today. I received the equivalent of twenty-nine seventy four. I’d justContinue reading “Friday, September 22, 1944”

Wednesday, September 20, 1944

Dearest Gee. Feel better now. Just received your Sept. 4 and Aug. 29 letters and Joannie’s swell card note and money order. Also got a nice long letter from Mom of Sept. 4. I want to write Joannie my thanks but don’t know whether I’ll have time or not tonight as it’s getting dark. It’sContinue reading “Wednesday, September 20, 1944”

Monday, September 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any mail today or yesterday (so far today anyway). It sure makes it tough to write a letter. Douglass brought me my camera so now I can take the other four pictures if it stops this liquid sunshine long enough. I still haven’t received the films you sent. Hope they don’tContinue reading “Monday, September 18, 1944”

Saturday, September 16, 1944

Dearest Gee. Feel better now, I just got five letters all dated Sept 1 from you, Mom, Es, Sis and Bernadine. Bernie sent me her picture which was very sweet of her. I showed it to these G.I. wolves and they went nuts. They had to know all the details. So you are in ChicagoContinue reading “Saturday, September 16, 1944”

Friday, September 15, 1944

Dearest Gee. No letter from you yesterday or today again, so far. Maybe I’ll get one later on tonight. Well, according to the radio announcers and newspapermen, the war was supposed to be over today, wasn’t it? I haven’t noticed it slackening up any around here. The news does sound better day by day butContinue reading “Friday, September 15, 1944”

Thursday, September 14, 1944

Dearest Gee. Only got one letter yesterday and it was a v-mail from Coe. Guess I owe her about six months worth of letters. Listened to the war news awhile ago. Those Jerries are really getting the punishment. They aren’t getting any rest at this end either. The Burlington Free of Aug 24 or 28th,Continue reading “Thursday, September 14, 1944”

Wednesday, September 13, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, I scrounged a little paper and some envelopes and I have the stamps you so kindly sent so I’ll try a regular letter. Got your swell card and money order for five fish yesterday. Sho thank you. Am I to understand Joannie put some in on it too? That wasn’t quite clear.Continue reading “Wednesday, September 13, 1944”
