Monday, January 15 & Tuesday, January 16, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I haven’t heard from you for a couple of days now, no letters from anyone today. Maybe tomorrow, huh! I’ve been dashing off letters like mad lately trying to get this new address to them. Haven’t written Coe or Claude + Mildred yet but figured they would find out right awayContinue reading “Monday, January 15 & Tuesday, January 16, 1945”

Thursday, January 4, 1945

Somewhere in northern France Dearest Gee. Well, honey, after I had written your letter yesterday we had our first mail call and I collected four, one of them being your Dec. 19th jobby. Sho was glad to get it too. Also got a letter from Mildred C, and one from Coe, and a card fromContinue reading “Thursday, January 4, 1945”

Monday, December 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Honey, I didn’t get any letter from you today or yesterday, but I sure got a nice package from Joannie and Francy. It was a big one too, it had a can of cookies and a lot of candy bars in it. I sure would like to know where your package went to.Continue reading “Monday, December 18, 1944”

Friday, December 15, 1944

Dearest Gee. My mail really seems to be piling in now. I hope it keeps up the good work. Yesterday I got several more letters. Your very sweet letters of Nov. 17, 20th, and the lonesome card and letter of Nov. 21. I got a three pager from Dad that really surprised me, one fromContinue reading “Friday, December 15, 1944”

Thursday, November 30, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, this has been a record day as far as mail and packages are concerned. I got no less than seven packages, and three letters. The guys really put up a yip. They all said how can they ever get any packages when the army has to ship all mine and takeContinue reading “Thursday, November 30, 1944”

Tuesday, November 21, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I hit the jackpot again yesterday. Got your nice five pager of Nov. 5th and v-mail of the 6th. Also got a v- from Mae and Coe. Last but not least I got a package from Mom. Just finished writing a thank you note to Sis for a package and nowContinue reading “Tuesday, November 21, 1944”

Saturday, November 4, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got two “dehydrated” letters yesterday. One from you and one from Coe. I’m getting all twisted up on whether you’re improving from taking these treatments or not. One letter will say you aren’t doing so good and another will say you are. Then I compare dates (if I still have the letters) andContinue reading “Saturday, November 4, 1944”

Friday, October 20, 1944

Dearest Gee, Did mighty well on the letters today, my little hollyhock. Got your v-mail of Oct. 3, a v- from Sis, and Coe, and a letter from Mom and Erv. That makes twice now that Erv has written three pages. Don’t see how he does it but he did. Sure was glad to getContinue reading “Friday, October 20, 1944”

Wednesday, October 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your two morale builders today, although I think one was a morale “breaker downer.” The one with all the legs showing. What was you trying to do, kid? Whatever it was, you succeeded. The pictures were all good tho but I’m sweating out some 4F, or maybe a regular United States soldier,Continue reading “Wednesday, October 18, 1944”

Saturday, October 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Sept. 10 air mail and your Sept 23 v-mail last night. Also got a v-mail from Coe dated Sept 20th. Your air mail was a nice long one that I sure enjoyed. Hope they have hooked that maniac running around Mattoon by now. He might take a notion to go visitingContinue reading “Saturday, October 7, 1944”
