Our WWII Soldier Says It Looks Like Rough Sledding Here On Out

July 2, 1944

My Darling Mark
Hello Sweetheart
I haven’t written for quite some time so will write a few lines. I have been pretty busy lately honey – or would have written sooner.
I won’t have much time to write honey – but will every chance I get. We haven’t had any mail for some time now.
I’d like to write & tell you of a lot of stuff here but can’t you know.
It looks as tho its going to be pretty rough sledding here on out.
It rains nearly every day here – enough to make it muddy & miserable.
Dode is in the Navy in Texas now – they finally got him too. Heard from your brother lately?
Honey – I sho miss you & all that loving that goes with you. I could sure use some now. I can remember the times I’ve missed loving you and I rue it to this day. I’ll know better when I get back. I’ll know better than to pull any more of those stunts I did at Manhattan!!!!!
One never knows till its too late – does one? Huh?
I got some pictures from Cec. a while back.
Well, honey I’d better close for now – I’ve got some water heating for coffee. Synthetic coffee! I’d like to taste some good coffee again.
I’d better write home too I guess so will close for now. I miss you and love you more every day honey. Write soon. Bye for now. I love you Sweetheart.
All My Love Always,    Johnny
