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”

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”

Friday, January 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. I’m having the same trouble with your mail as you are with mine. Namely, I just don’t get any from you. Get them from everybody else tho.

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.

Saturday, November 6, 1943

Dearest Gee. I wrote you two regular letters because I didn’t have any V-mail but Lee just let me have this sheet. It should be much faster than regular mail. I’m feeling fine and getting along okay.

[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.

Dearest Gee. Had another mail call today and I rated four. Got two nice ones from you, kid, and a swell one from Mom, and one of Mildred’s supers. Lord. I sure have been sweating over these letters.

Isn’t get any yesterday. Coe says that Aunt Pauline told her that she thought I hadContinue reading “Monday, October 18, 1943”

Sunday, October 17, 1943

Dearest Gee. Hello again, each time I think it’s the last letter for awhile and then we still hang around. Guess I’ll write as long as I can tho. This sure is one hell of a day. It’s been raining all day long. Got up this morning and it was raining and it’s never stopped.Continue reading “Sunday, October 17, 1943”
