During World War II, my parents corresponded with one another, with family members and with friends through letters, greeting cards and "Victory Mail," a photocopy of a letter written within a border and mailed. At times letters took as much as three weeks, even up to six months, before Jimmy or Emma read their spouse's sentiments, worries and celebrations. Enjoy and read along.

Leave Orders for Lt. Walter J. Gregory
From the Diary of James Gregory:
Taught N.C.O. class all day. Wanted to get off to go to get blood test and marriage license. Could not do it.
All other officers in the field.
Went to bivouac area all night and Friday (the next day, May 29).
Can't seem to go ahead with having only half-hearted answers.
