Dearest Gee. Received your Tuesday letter this noon so will try answering it now. Got a few minutes before I have to turn in some clothes. I have to turn in my service shoes finally.

Thursday, October 14, 1943 (second letter)

Dearest Gee. Just got that delovely letter at five o’clock. I had two bucks that I was hanging on to for dear life so I really wasn’t dead broke.

Reckon we ain’t going so soon after all. Must have been a sudden change in plans. Now we areContinue reading “Monday, October 4, 1943”
