Friday, May 19, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your nice April 27 v-mail today and it wasn’t even photographed. There was one smudge on it so I suppose they figured it wasn’t fit to photograph. Yes, Chick had a birthday but I didn’t know anything about it. The last time I saw him he mentioned something about his birthday andContinue reading “Friday, May 19, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Got your v-mail of May 1st and your airmail of April 18th. I’ve already received later airmails than that but I cease to wonder about the mail situation anymore.

Threw so many smoke grenades I feel like a fireman on a busy day. The way Chick describes our quarters you’d think weContinue reading “Saturday, May 6, 1944”
