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”

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”

Sunday, August 5, 1945

Dearest Gee. Honey, I got your swell lil’ ol’ number of July 24 (2nd edition) today. Was mighty sweet. Also got one from my momma. I don’t have a hell of a lot to talk about today. Nothing new seems to happen. I’m sending you another edition of the Spearhead I case you’re interested. ItContinue reading “Sunday, August 5, 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, May 21, 1945

Dearest Gee. I got your April 29 letter today and one from Mom of the 28th — and one back from the censor that I wrote you yesterday. I wrote you two yesterday, this second one I was answering some of your questions and they didn’t like some of the things I said. Someday, kid,Continue reading “Monday, May 21, 1945”

Saturday, April 28, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your delivery package yesterday of a half peanut (?) and coke and noodles. Boy, did that go good. The boys all said to write you again so I am. It went down right easy. I also got a package from Jack and Hilah of fudge and magazines. Sure wasContinue reading “Saturday, April 28, 1945”

Sunday, April 8, 1945

Somewhere in Germany. Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I feel pretty good today since I got four letters from you, a five pager typewritten from Mildred, and a four-pager from Mom. Your letters were dated March 19, 20, 22, and 23rd so they were fairly late ones which made it all the better. This is aContinue reading “Sunday, April 8, 1945”

Thursday, March 29, 1945

Dearest Gee. Guess the mail is slowing down again now. I just got a letter from Chick telling me about him being in the hospital with yellow jaundice. You told me that in your last letter. He said Paul Wilson was in to see him. Also told me he hadn’t been to Nancy yet butContinue reading “Thursday, March 29, 1945”

Thursday, March 8, 1945

Dearest Gee. Lord, kid, I got your Feb 23 letter today about Eli and it sure floored me. I sure wasn’t looking for anything like that. Was going to send a telegram but wrote a letter instead. It would take another week for a telegram to get back anyway. He must have just gone offContinue reading “Thursday, March 8, 1945”

Saturday, January 27, 1945

Dearest Gee. Gosh, honey, I got three more letters from you today and one from Claudie. Really am hitting them now. The letters were your Jan. 7th, 8th, and 14th so they were late ones. I was just checking up on the letters I got from you in December. I find it was seventeen soContinue reading “Saturday, January 27, 1945”
