Sunday, March 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, well, what do you know, a Sunday off for a change. I’m really catching up on some shut-eye and rest. I got your swell St. Patrick’s Day card and letter, honey. You don’t forget any holiday, do you? Glad to hear I have seven boxes on the way but can’t for theContinue reading “Sunday, March 4, 1945”

Friday, January 26, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got three nice packages today. Got yours, Joannie’s, and one from Es and Harry. Yours wasn’t the long-awaited one but it was okay anyway. It had candy, popcorn, and two packages of tobacco in it that were sure a big help. I’ve been smoking my pipe quite a bit lately.Continue reading “Friday, January 26, 1945”

Saturday, December 23, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, what do you think of the picture? Do you think you can have it made bigger, and more copies made from it? They only allowed us one picture apiece and I imagine Mom + Dad would like one. The names of the fellows are as follows; reading left to right, first row:Continue reading “Saturday, December 23, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Just went over today and had a grand shower. It was one of those portable units and really hit the spot. I now feel like a million bucks. Also got my hair cut and a shave.

It was the first time you mentioned getting a letter from me so I gather it was the first letter you’ve received. You shouldContinue reading “Thursday, December 16, 1943”

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. He should be on a farm where he’d really have some room. Yes, you’d better watch that fur coat.Continue reading “Wednesday, November 24, 1943 (Thanksgiving)”

Friday, November 5, 1943

[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. The climate is really nice. Things look so queer to me here. If I only had myContinue reading “Friday, November 5, 1943”
