Monday, March 27, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your March 14th v-mail today. Also got a long letter from Mom and a v-mail from Florence. You guys really must be having a time with Linda. I know the folks are anyway. Mom was telling of some of the antics she went through too. I sure would like to see her.Continue reading “Monday, March 27, 1944”

Sunday, March 26, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, I really did hit today from you. Got five letters from you. An airmail with those “snow” pictures, and four v-mails of the 8th, two of the 10th and one of the 12th. Also got the cutest letter from Billy. They really are a masterpiece. I think I just asked last nightContinue reading “Sunday, March 26, 1944”

Monday, March 20, 1944

Dearest Gee. Hit the jackpot again today on the mail. Got two v-mails from you and a air mail and a package of funnies. Also got two long letters from Mom. Then I got a v-mail from Era. I managed to write Erv a letter last night. He was beginning to wonder why I hadn’tContinue reading “Monday, March 20, 1944”

Sunday, February 20, 1944

Somewhere on the Anzio Beachhead Dearest Gee. Got that swell little Valentine from you. Sorry I couldn’t send you one. Also got Joannie’s nice card. Be sure and thank her and give her my regards. Got one from Jennie and Joe [Chick] too. Tell her thanks for me. As you can see my the headingContinue reading “Sunday, February 20, 1944”

Tuesday, February 15, 1944

Dearest Gee. Just showed Close your pictures. It is pretty well settled that the best picture of you is the one where you are sitting on the floor by the presents. From all that array of gifts spread out there, it looks like you did first rate. Sure enjoyed my candy and am still enjoyingContinue reading “Tuesday, February 15, 1944”

Friday, February 11, 1944

(or possibly a second letter on February 10, 1944) Dearest Gee. Got your v-mail of January 17 yesterday. Also got a v-mail of Jan. 18 from Mildred C. And one from Sis of Jan. 21. The mail seems to be coming in pretty good now. Just hope it continues. That’s a good idea about keepingContinue reading “Friday, February 11, 1944”

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. Yesterday I got two packages, one from the Crofts and one from Dad. Es + Harry sent a box of chocolate and some package candy andContinue reading “Friday, January 28, 1944”

Saturday, January 22, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I had another pay day. Didn’t come any too soon either. In case you want to mark it down it was 29.60 lira. Better known as twenty-nine dollars and sixty cents. The first five went to a cameo for you. It isn’t in a setting but I suppose — rather I’mContinue reading “Saturday, January 22, 1944”

Friday, December 10, 1943

Dearest Gee. Received your Nov 4 letter today with the newspaper in it. Also got one from Sis. They sure get the mail mixed up as far as dates are concerned but then don’t suppose that can be helped. I’m tickled to death to get one even if it was a year old. I sawContinue reading “Friday, December 10, 1943”

Wednesday, November 24, 1943 (Thanksgiving)

Dearest Gee. Just received your Oct 31, Nov. 1 and 4 letters today. Made my Thanksgiving not so bad after all. So Francy has up and did it again, huh! I thought it was about time. He should be on a farm where he’d really have some room. Yes, you’d better watch that fur coat.Continue reading “Wednesday, November 24, 1943 (Thanksgiving)”
