Wednesday, August 22, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got two nice long letters from you yesterday dated Aug 9 + 10th. Sure got a kick out of your birthday number. You sure sounded worried because you hit thirty. Honey, I’ve been thirty for the last two years. Don’t worry about it because in the pictures enclosed you lookedContinue reading “Wednesday, August 22, 1945”

Saturday, August 18, 1945

Dearest Gee. Was going to write you yesterday but got to feeling so tough that I didn’t quite make it. I had started one to the folks yesterday morning and I barely got that one done. Had a tooth yanked out yesterday morning and it sure knocked me out. Guess I waited too long toContinue reading “Saturday, August 18, 1945”

Thursday, August 16, 1945

Dearest Gee. Might as well start writing while I’m sweating out a mail call. Should know in a few minutes whether I have any or not. When I do get some it generally is late mail. I think your letters are coming over airmail and mine are going by boat since it takes so longContinue reading “Thursday, August 16, 1945”

Friday, August 10, 1945

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY! Sure hope we spend that next one different from this. Have been thinking about you all day and wondering how and what you were doing. Are you going out and celebrate tonight? Hope you have a good time, kid, only take it easy on account your pappy may be coming to seeContinue reading “Friday, August 10, 1945”

Thursday, August 9, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, one more day and you’ll have another birthday. I won’t mention how young you are. Hope you have a swell day, honey, and I’ll be thinking special hard about you all day, if that’s possible. They have some fairly nice looking jewelry in town but it’s tabu to go in andContinue reading “Thursday, August 9, 1945”

Tuesday, August 7, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got three letters from you today, kid, and two packages. They sure hit the spot. They were nice long ones and had good news in them for a change. Sure am glad Chick is on his way — or should I say — home now? I’m looking forward to a letter from himContinue reading “Tuesday, August 7, 1945”

Saturday, August 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Thought sure I had a letter and a half today but it turned out to be the anniversary cards you sent. They were all pretty swell weren’t they. And for some reason or other they all wanted me and you to be together for the next one. Little do they know that weContinue reading “Saturday, August 4, 1945”

Friday, August 3, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got two letters from you yesterday and one today. Sho like that. Yesterday’s letters were dated July 22 and 24 (anniversary day) and today’s was 26. Not bad time is it? I would have written last night but had a pass to Oslo. Really didn’t want to go but theContinue reading “Friday, August 3, 1945”

Monday, July 30, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got your two swell letters of the 16th and 19th today and two packages. One had shaving cream in it and the other funny papers and four packs of cigarettes. Sure thank you, honey, but you don’t need to send me cigarettes. You probably need them yourself, don’t you? I also got anotherContinue reading “Monday, July 30, 1945”

Saturday, July 28, 1945

Dearest Gee. Golly, honey, I haven’t got any letters from you now for two days. I got one from Mom yesterday of June 1st that had an APO of 413 and she didn’t put the infantry regiment number on it. It was all marked up but it finally got here. The top kick says heContinue reading “Saturday, July 28, 1945”
