Tuesday, July 3, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got five more letters today, honey, boy I sure can’t complain on that score now. I got your swell letters of June 11th and 20th, one from Mom, one five pager from Mildred C. and one v-mail from Carrie. So me Brudder Moon is coming home, hey? Maybe by the time you getContinue reading “Tuesday, July 3, 1945”

Wednesday, June 27, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got two deluxe packages from you today, honey, and I sure thank you lots for those. One was the can of cookies (and are they every good!) with the candy bars too; and the other was the box of two bricks of cheese things, candy bars, can of chocolate and caramels (mmmh) —Continue reading “Wednesday, June 27, 1945”

Friday, June 22, 1945

Dearest Gee. At long last, honey, some mail came through. Seems to be fairly late mail too as your latest was dated June 8. I got your letters of May 28, June 2, 4, 7, + 8th. That was the postmarks anyway. Then I got a nice long one from Dad of the 6ht, oneContinue reading “Friday, June 22, 1945”

Wednesday, June 6, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, Norway at last. Sure had a fine trip but was wishing to go west in place of north. I went by plane from Le Havre to here and really enjoyed it. Some of the guys got sick but, thank the Lord, I didn’t. Made one stop near Hamburg long enough toContinue reading “Wednesday, June 6, 1945”

Tuesday, May 29, 1945

Dearest Gee. Lord’s sakes, this month seems like it’s been six years long. Don’t know why but the days sure seem to hang on longer than they should. It doesn’t get dark until after ten and that doesn’t help matters any. I’ll sure be glad (I hope) when we get to Norway. At least itContinue reading “Tuesday, May 29, 1945”

Monday, May 28, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got three swell letters from you today, kid, and three from Mom. Sure was glad to get them too as they were the first I’ve received that were written after this war was over. Yours were of May 8, 9, and 18th. That ten-day one sure made good time, didn’t it? I wasContinue reading “Monday, May 28, 1945”

Sunday, May 27, 1945

Dearest Gee. Didn’t hear from you today, honey, but I got a v-mail from Coe dated May 14 so that is a pretty late one. I noticed she used the APO 4994, hasn’t anyone told her the latest one? I wrote her the other day and told her. I was kinda planning on going toContinue reading “Sunday, May 27, 1945”

Saturday, May 26, 1945

(Note: this letter and the one following tomorrow are dated the same, but only the following/tomorrow’s seems to have been written on the 27th. I believe this letter precedes the next one, but it is possible it follows instead). Dearest Gee. Got your May 2 jobby today and a swell package. It had candy bars,Continue reading “Saturday, May 26, 1945”

Friday, May 25, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got an old letter of March 28 from you today, but it was still welcome. Also got a nice v-mail from Coe. She sure has been a peach. She writes whether I do or not. In your letter you were telling me about being over to Kramers’ for Eloise’s party.Continue reading “Friday, May 25, 1945”

Sunday, May 20, 1945

Somewhere in France. Dearest Gee. This being Sunday and nine o’clock in the morning, I got a little time to start this letter any way. I’m going to church this morning but it doesn’t take up until ten. I was going to dash Chick off a line to let him know the newest APO numberContinue reading “Sunday, May 20, 1945”
