Thursday, August 23, 1945

Dearest Gee. Got your swell Aug 12 number yesterday after I had already wrote you, and today I got your Aug 2 one. So finally Chick hit the States! I’ll bet you all were excited. It’s a wonder Joannie hadn’t passed out. I don’t think Chick has changed in looks any only he looks older,Continue reading “Thursday, August 23, 1945”

Saturday, August 18, 1945

Dearest Gee. Was going to write you yesterday but got to feeling so tough that I didn’t quite make it. I had started one to the folks yesterday morning and I barely got that one done. Had a tooth yanked out yesterday morning and it sure knocked me out. Guess I waited too long toContinue reading “Saturday, August 18, 1945”

Thursday, August 16, 1945

Dearest Gee. Might as well start writing while I’m sweating out a mail call. Should know in a few minutes whether I have any or not. When I do get some it generally is late mail. I think your letters are coming over airmail and mine are going by boat since it takes so longContinue reading “Thursday, August 16, 1945”

Sunday, July 29, 1945

Dearest Gee. Almost forgot what date it was. I got your nice letter of July 18 today, (damn this typewriter anyway) also got one from big Harry, and one from Hilah.

Dearest Gee. Got “boo coos” [beaucoup] more mail today, honey. Three from you, one of the being that very fine card. Mighty sweet sentiments. The other two were dated June 26, and July 9. The June jobs was written from Vienna. Guess you were having quite a time. I also got a swell card fromContinue reading “Tuesday, July 17, 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”

I got your letters of May 10, 13, 20, 22, 23, 24, 28, and June 13. That last one sure made good time considering everything itContinue reading “Saturday, June 23, 1945”

Dearest Gee. I had a field day of field days today honey. What do you think — I got that Christmas package you sent so long ago, along with four more. One package was from Mom but the others were from you, kid, and I sure thank you. We’ve had a section leader meeting everyContinue reading “Sunday, May 6, 1945”

Friday, May 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any letters yesterday or today, honey, but guess I shouldn’t kick after that gob I got the other day. The package is all gone now. We ate noodles and jelly, eggs, fried potatoes and just before the meal we each took a snort of ye olden Taylor. T’were in the neighborhoodContinue reading “Friday, May 4, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your delivery package yesterday of a half peanut (?) and coke and noodles. Boy, did that go good. The boys all said to write you again so I am. It went down right easy. I also got a package from Jack and Hilah of fudge and magazines. Sure wasContinue reading “Saturday, April 28, 1945”
