Tuesday, August 29, 1944

Dearest Gee. Have a few minutes to dash off another line. I’m still okay to date. Haven’t received any mail as yet but maybe there will come a day. The French people are treating us swell. Every time we liberate a town the whole population turns out and it’s like a parade. The wine flowsContinue reading “Tuesday, August 29, 1944”

Friday, August 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. As you undoubtedly know by now, we are somewhere in France. Where, I don’t rightly know myself. I came through okay so far. It was quite a show. I have three or four picture I managed to take. Nothing out of the ordinary. A couple of different batches of prisoners we took andContinue reading “Friday, August 18, 1944”

Wednesday, August 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. Long time no here again. Got a letter from Erv yesterday and that’s all. Maybe tonight I hope, the sack will come in. When I don’t get any letters then I haven’t anything to write about. Haven’t you received that package yet? Lawd, Lawd, wonder what’s the matter? It’s been almost two months.Continue reading “Wednesday, August 9, 1944”

Sunday, August 6, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your letter with the address book in it today. I didn’t realize how much good that thing was until I lost mine. Thanks for going to all the trouble. Not that I can ever write to all the people whose address you put in, but it’s nice to know when all theContinue reading “Sunday, August 6, 1944”

Sunday, July 30, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your July 19 air mail today with the color picture of you in it. It’s pretty good but the color kinda blurs the picture, don’t you think. If that coat is any more red that that is should stop traffic. That sure is some expensive films almost as bad as over here.Continue reading “Sunday, July 30, 1944”

Friday, July 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your July 16 airmail jobby today. Also got one from Erv and a v-mail from Coe. Last but not least, a nice big package from Jack and Hilah. It was full of peanut clusters, caramels, lemon drops, taffy bars and three magazines. Was sure surprised. That calls for another letter. This guyContinue reading “Friday, July 28, 1944”

Thursday, July 27, 1944

Dearest Gee. Sure got a lot of writing to do now. Got your July 8, 9, 12th, 14th, 15th, and 20th airmails. Also got a long one from Sis dated the 17th. She sent me a bunch of jokes that are really good. You’ve said so much now, I don’t know where to start. I’mContinue reading “Thursday, July 27, 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”

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”

Sunday, July 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. No letter from you last night. I got a long one from Erv and a v-mail from Es tho. Erv wrote three big pages which is a record for him. I haven’t been doing so good by him myself. I answered his last night and that’s all I wrote. Wish I could findContinue reading “Sunday, July 9, 1944”
