Monday, July 24, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, this is our day, kid. Seven years ago we were sure nervous, ain’t it? Now we have to make up for three anniversaries besides all the other holidays. I bought you a cameo bracelet and I’ll send it air mail if I can. It should get there in time for your birthday.Continue reading “Monday, July 24, 1944”

Friday, July 21, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your July 10 v-mail today. That’s not bad time for v-mail. So you romped again on the shoes. I hope you at least bought some you can wear and not have to just sit and look at them. From all these good rumors floating around about Hitler about ready to give up,Continue reading “Friday, July 21, 1944”

Wednesday, July 19, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your June 29 letter today and that isn’t such good time. You had remarked in your letter on how fast my letter had got there. Sometimes they just happen to hit the right connections. I was afraid I’d have trouble with Chick on that deal. As far as I’m concerned, I know!Continue reading “Wednesday, July 19, 1944”

Tuesday, July 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Say, this is certainly some very fancy stationary. When you said you were having some made I didn’t know you were going to have the whole thing put on. Saves a lot of time this way. Sho do thank you a lot, kid. The only trouble is, I can’t get airmail stamps toContinue reading “Tuesday, July 18, 1944”

Saturday, July 15, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your July 3 letter and Mom’s July 4 letter yesterday. They were both nice long ones too. You sure sounded kinda down in the dumps. Cheer up, I’m banking on the Russians getting this war over this summer. Might have to last to this fall. Can you get any more film? ThereContinue reading “Saturday, July 15, 1944”

Wednesday, July 12, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your June 31st letter yesterday. It was nice and newsy. It’s funny that Jenny would start wondering at a time like this about Joe, don’t you think? She is entirely too flighty. I don’t think she knows just what she does want. Just so you don’t get that way. I’m on C.Q.Continue reading “Wednesday, July 12, 1944”

Monday, July 10, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your nice June 28th air mail today. And still another picture bites the dust. No, I’m afraid I’ve never been in that part of the country. Up to date I don’t know of any news photographers taking any pictures with me in it. They might accidentally slip one over some time whenContinue reading “Monday, July 10, 1944”
