Dearest Gee. Well, what do you think of the picture? Do you think you can have it made bigger, and more copies made from it? They only allowed us one picture apiece and I imagine Mom + Dad would like one. The names of the fellows are as follows; reading left to right, first row:Continue reading “Saturday, December 23, 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”

Wednesday, December 13, 1944

Dearest Gee. Guess my moaning must have brought some results in the mail line. I got six lovely letters from you today, honey, and four more from others. Also got three packages of funnies from you.

Tuesday, December 12, 1944

Dearest Gee. Boy, the mail sure is coming in slow now for some reason or other. I got a v-mail from Dad of Nov. 28th and one from Carrie of the 27th but none from you, kid. Boy, day before yesterday did I ever get a swell package from Jack and Hilah! One like Bernard’s.Continue reading “Tuesday, December 12, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Well, I hit again for five letters and a swell Christmas package from Joannie and Francy. The box had marshmallows, caramels, and hot tamales in it. We cleaned it all up last night.

Thursday, November 2, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got “boo coo” [beaucoup] mail again today. Had to give up on the typewriter last night before I was quite ready. Didn’t get to thank you for the five rolls of film you sent Oct. 5th. Also got a Christmas box from Mom chuck full of candy bars, marshmallows and even some licoriceContinue reading “Thursday, November 2, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Lords Sakes, Honey, have I ever been getting the mail! It’s been coming in too fast to answer. I’ve got fourteen letters and three packages in the last three days. Your letters accounted for seven of that number. Four nice long air mails and three v-mails. The dates of the air mails wereContinue reading “Wednesday, October 25, 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”

Dearest Gee. Got four wonderful letters from you today. Your Sept. 12, 14, 15, and 17 air-mails. Also got a letter from Mom and Mildred C, and a v-mail from Florence so I really had a field day. If that’s the way the Ouija board feels about things, you’d better throw it away. I sureContinue reading “Thursday, October 12, 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”
