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. We must both be in the same fix, namely not getting one another’s mail. Haven’t received your package yet either. What are they trying to do to us, kid,Continue reading “Friday, December 22, 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”

Tuesday, November 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I celebrated Election Day with two v-mails from you of Oct. 25th and 26th and a big package from the Gehrkes’ and the Neslers’ combined. It had everything imaginable in it. Hankys, pecans, gum, candy bars, shaving cream, toothpaste (two tubes of each) and cookies. I’m really getting quite a supplyContinue reading “Tuesday, November 7, 1944”

Tuesday, July 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Say, this is certainly some very fancy stationary. When you said you were having some made I didn’t know you were going to have the whole thing put on. Saves a lot of time this way. Sho do thank you a lot, kid. The only trouble is, I can’t get airmail stamps toContinue reading “Tuesday, July 18, 1944”

Saturday, May 6, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got those two juicy airmails of the 17th and 25th today. Got a nice long typewritten jobby from Sis too. Sure am tired tonight. Went through a few maneuvers today. Threw so many smoke grenades I feel like a fireman on a busy day. The way Chick describes our quarters you’d think weContinue reading “Saturday, May 6, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Well, honey. I received a flock more mail today. Got that de lovely Valentine (yes, it was a little late!). How many of those did you send me?

Friday, January 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. I’m having the same trouble with your mail as you are with mine. Namely, I just don’t get any from you. Get them from everybody else tho.

Thursday, October 14, 1943 (second letter)

Dearest Gee. Just got that delovely letter at five o’clock. I had two bucks that I was hanging on to for dear life so I really wasn’t dead broke. I had visions for awhile of going to New York with Close. Thought maybe the Captain would give us a pass from Friday night till MondayContinue reading “Thursday, October 14, 1943 (second letter)”

Tuesday, October 12, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, how do you feel today? Sure wish you’d quit having those bad old spells. Anytime you get sick you call the doctor. I got your nice donation yesterday, thank you. We’re all broke but happy. Nearly everyone has allotments or sent their money home because they thought they were leaving right awayContinue reading “Tuesday, October 12, 1943”
