Dearest Gee. Boy, the mail sure is coming in slow now for some reason or other. I got a v-mail from Dad of Nov. 28th and one from Carrie of the 27th but none from you, kid. Boy, day before yesterday did I ever get a swell package from Jack and Hilah! One like Bernard’s.Continue reading “Tuesday, December 12, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Found a little more of this paper so I’m gonna make use of it. The envelopes are finished. Got seven letters the last two days. Your swell airmails of Nov. 7, 9, and 11th; a nice one from Mom of the 8th; a five pager from Mildred of the 2nd; a Christmas cardContinue reading “Saturday, November 25, 1944”

Sunday, October 22, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, I had another big mail day today. Got your swell package of cookies and popcorn. Will have them for breakfast. Got two packages from the DeAtleys. One had a coffee can poured full of fudge and it came through in fine shape. Wasn’t a bit dry. The other was a coffee canContinue reading “Sunday, October 22, 1944”

Saturday, October 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Sept. 10 air mail and your Sept 23 v-mail last night. Also got a v-mail from Coe dated Sept 20th. Your air mail was a nice long one that I sure enjoyed. Hope they have hooked that maniac running around Mattoon by now. He might take a notion to go visitingContinue reading “Saturday, October 7, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Santa Claus arrived early this year. I got four packages from you. Candy bars, marshmallows, and peanuts. I don’t know who had the most fun, the fellows with me, or me. They got just as excited as if they belonged to them. We sure do thank you, kid. Also got a letter fromContinue reading “Thursday, September 28, 1944”

Friday, September 22, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, I’m back down to v-mail again. Haven’t got any more air mail stamps so it will have to be these for awhile. Didn’t get any letters yesterday but I wrote everyone that I owed one to. We got a partial pay today. I received the equivalent of twenty-nine seventy four. I’d justContinue reading “Friday, September 22, 1944”

Monday, July 31, 1944

Dearest Gee. Kinda hit the jackpot again. Got two airmails from you of the 18th and 22nd, 1 from Mom and 1 from Dad, and a card and letter from Jack + Hilah. Sure enjoyed them all especially Dad’s as I hadn’t heard from him in some time. He says he’s been writing on theContinue reading “Monday, July 31, 1944”

Sunday, July 30, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your July 19 air mail today with the color picture of you in it. It’s pretty good but the color kinda blurs the picture, don’t you think. If that coat is any more red that that is should stop traffic. That sure is some expensive films almost as bad as over here.Continue reading “Sunday, July 30, 1944”

Friday, July 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your July 16 airmail jobby today. Also got one from Erv and a v-mail from Coe. Last but not least, a nice big package from Jack and Hilah. It was full of peanut clusters, caramels, lemon drops, taffy bars and three magazines. Was sure surprised. That calls for another letter. This guyContinue reading “Friday, July 28, 1944”
