Thursday, July 27, 1944

Dearest Gee. Sure got a lot of writing to do now. Got your July 8, 9, 12th, 14th, 15th, and 20th airmails. Also got a long one from Sis dated the 17th. She sent me a bunch of jokes that are really good. You’ve said so much now, I don’t know where to start. I’mContinue reading “Thursday, July 27, 1944”

Wednesday, July 19, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your June 29 letter today and that isn’t such good time. You had remarked in your letter on how fast my letter had got there. Sometimes they just happen to hit the right connections. I was afraid I’d have trouble with Chick on that deal. As far as I’m concerned, I know!Continue reading “Wednesday, July 19, 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, July 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. No letter from you last night. I got a long one from Erv and a v-mail from Es tho. Erv wrote three big pages which is a record for him. I haven’t been doing so good by him myself. I answered his last night and that’s all I wrote. Wish I could findContinue reading “Sunday, July 9, 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, February 29, 1944

Dearest Gee. Just went over today and had a grand shower. It was one of those portable units and really hit the spot. I now feel like a million bucks. Also got my hair cut and a shave. Garcia cuts my hair now. Douglass has quit the barbering business. Garcia is quite a character. WeContinue reading “Tuesday, February 29, 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)”

Friday, November 5, 1943

[Location redacted] Dearest Gee. Have a few minutes to spare now so will drop you a line to let you know I arrived safe and sound. We had a swell trip but I’m glad that part is over. The climate is really nice. Things look so queer to me here. If I only had myContinue reading “Friday, November 5, 1943”
