Dearest Gee. Received your v-mail jobs of Dec. 12th today. Kinda old, huh? Also got a letter from Hilah telling me all her troubles, and it sounds as if she has plenty. Then I got a v-mail from Mom. Yesterday I got a card from Aunt Stella and one from the Rumrys of La Salle.Continue reading “Wednesday, January 31, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Sure got plenty of mail today, kid. A little more than I can answer tonight, I’m afraid, but I’m going to try like hell.

Monday, January 15 & Tuesday, January 16, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I haven’t heard from you for a couple of days now, no letters from anyone today. Maybe tomorrow, huh! I’ve been dashing off letters like mad lately trying to get this new address to them. Haven’t written Coe or Claude + Mildred yet but figured they would find out right awayContinue reading “Monday, January 15 & Tuesday, January 16, 1945”

Dearest Gee. My mail really seems to be piling in now. I hope it keeps up the good work. Yesterday I got several more letters. Your very sweet letters of Nov. 17, 20th, and the lonesome card and letter of Nov. 21. I got a three pager from Dad that really surprised me, one fromContinue reading “Friday, December 15, 1944”

Tuesday, December 12, 1944

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. 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.

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.

Thursday, September 28, 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”
