Thursday, April 12, 1945 (second letter)

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I just wrote you a four pager awhile ago but that was before we had our mail call. I really collected from you.

Dearest Gee. Hit the jackpot again today, honey. Got three swell letters from you and one nice long one from Sis. Yours were dated Feb. 7, 8, and 12th and Sis was dated the 12th too. That’s doing pretty well even as to time. I hope mine are doing that good. Was certainly a blowContinue reading “Thursday, February 22, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got three nice packages today. Got yours, Joannie’s, and one from Es and Harry. Yours wasn’t the long-awaited one but it was okay anyway.

Saturday, December 23, 1944

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 22, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Dec. 7th jobby today and one from Mom and Carrie of Dec. 8th. Sure was glad to get them and especially yours.
