Dearest Gee. I don’t feel a day over thirty-two kid. Gawd that sounds old. Let’s quit talking about it. Yesterday I got a nice card and letters from Mom along with four packs of cigarettes, also got a nice card from Coe yesterday. Today I got a card from Jack DeAtley and your long letterContinue reading “Tuesday, September 11, 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. She told me all about Jack and his poison ivy. That really must be something. I guess he has it all over his lowerContinue reading “Sunday, July 29, 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”

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”

Saturday, April 28, 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”

Sunday, February 25, 1945

Dearest Gee. I’m going to try and write you a letter but I’ve got visitors and you know how that goes. Write a line and then stop and shoot the bull for an hour. I had a little time this morning and dashed Billy off a line. I went to see Doug today for awhile.Continue reading “Sunday, February 25, 1945”

Wednesday, February 21, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, the mail slacked up today. I didn’t win anything. Yesterday I got three from Chick. He sent me a flock more jokes that were sent to him. I wrote him last night and sent that full page of the wreck on State Street that you sent me. I got a letter fromContinue reading “Wednesday, February 21, 1945”
