Somewhere in Germany. Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I feel pretty good today since I got four letters from you, a five pager typewritten from Mildred, and a four-pager from Mom. Your letters were dated March 19, 20, 22, and 23rd so they were fairly late ones which made it all the better. This is aContinue reading “Sunday, April 8, 1945”

Thursday, March 8, 1945

Dearest Gee. Lord, kid, I got your Feb 23 letter today about Eli and it sure floored me. I sure wasn’t looking for anything like that. Was going to send a telegram but wrote a letter instead. It would take another week for a telegram to get back anyway. He must have just gone offContinue reading “Thursday, March 8, 1945”

Sunday, February 11, 1945

Dearest Gee. Haven’t got any mail for the last two days so there isn’t much I got to offer today in the way of news. We got our PX rations today so I can smoke awhile longer. I bought another guys ration of cigarettes so I’m pretty well fixed up. Chesterfields to kid! Doesn’t thatContinue reading “Sunday, February 11, 1945”

Monday, December 25, 1944

Dearest Gee. Merry Christmas, honey. I had a good one because I got three letters from you today and one card from Es + Harry. Yesterday I drew a package from Claude and Mildred that had candy bars galore in it, a can of soup (chicken noodle), a much needed pencil, lead, and eraser, andContinue reading “Monday, December 25, 1944”

Thursday, December 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your nice letter of Nov. 14 today. The first one in almost a week. Boy, I’ve been hurting for mail. Also got a nice Christmas card from the Hines. She wrote me a little note at the bottom. Can’t understand about the mail. Packages seem to be coming through okay but notContinue reading “Thursday, December 7, 1944”

Saturday, November 25, 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”

Thursday, November 16, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got five letters today for the first time in about three days. One from you of Oct. 25, one from Mildred, same date, one from Chick, one from Erv, and one from Hilah. Takes in almost everyone, don’t it? Guess you are really having a time with your company, aren’t you? I hopeContinue reading “Thursday, November 16, 1944”

Wednesday, November 1, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your Oct. 19th, and 20th letters today. Also got a nice long one from Mom dated the 20th. We’ve been pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to write. I got a chance to use this typewriter so you can at least half way read this one.Continue reading “Wednesday, November 1, 1944”

Friday, October 20, 1944

Dearest Gee, Did mighty well on the letters today, my little hollyhock. Got your v-mail of Oct. 3, a v- from Sis, and Coe, and a letter from Mom and Erv. That makes twice now that Erv has written three pages. Don’t see how he does it but he did. Sure was glad to getContinue reading “Friday, October 20, 1944”
