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”

Wednesday, November 1, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your Oct. 19th, and 20th letters today. Also got a nice long one from Mom dated the 20th. We’ve been pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to write. I got a chance to use this typewriter so you can at least half way read this one.Continue reading “Wednesday, November 1, 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”

Sunday, June 25, 1944

Dearest Gee. I was a little under the weather yesterday so I didn’t write any letters. No, I wasn’t stiff. Just a light case of the G.I.s. Only received one letter yesterday and that was from Sis. Since you asked for all the information on Wally, I’ve found a few things I can tell you.Continue reading “Sunday, June 25, 1944”

Saturday, June 10, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I didn’t get any letter from you today but managed three from the others. Got one from Dad, Sis, and Vic Winmer. Got quite a kick out of Vic’s letter, I’ll have to write him now that I have his address. If you can’t read this writing, blame it on theContinue reading “Saturday, June 10, 1944”

Friday, May 19, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your nice April 27 v-mail today and it wasn’t even photographed. There was one smudge on it so I suppose they figured it wasn’t fit to photograph. Yes, Chick had a birthday but I didn’t know anything about it. The last time I saw him he mentioned something about his birthday andContinue reading “Friday, May 19, 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”

Tuesday, April 25, 1944

Dearest Gee. Hit the jackpot again today. Got two lovely v-mails of the 8th and 11th from you. In fact, all my letters were v-mails. One from Mom, one from Mildred, one from Coe, one from Es, and one from Erv. Twas the first good mail call I had for three or four days. ItContinue reading “Tuesday, April 25, 1944”

Tuesday, April 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. No letters again today. Maybe tomorrow I’ll collect again. We managed a few P.X. supplies today so now I have this fancy writing paper. I’d rather have these kinds of tablets than I would the portfolio type as they are easier to carry around. Chapter two of the saga of the motorcycle. TodayContinue reading “Tuesday, April 18, 1944”
