Quote:Wow, no pressure on George!!!! All he has to do is train to go off to battle AND find a home for he and his family in his spare time!!!
Quote:I wonder how, in Homefront, Charlie and Caroline had that little one room apartment waiting for them when they came to River Run if he hadn't wired ahead and had someone find a place for them to live.

Quote:The Pikes lived in Florida until August 1943 until George was transferred to Camp Joseph T. Robinson near Little Rock, Arkansas. Catherine and the baby went with him. In March, 1944 Lt. Pike received his orders for combat and was sent to Ft. Meade, Maryland. Catherine and Georgie returned to Rhode Island to live with her parents.

Quote:I wonder if this was the event that made everything real to Renee? I mean, even though she knows this is what George has been training for all these months, to actually hear on the radio that the invasion has begun must have been like a cold slap of reality.

Quote:I hope your leg takes long enough to heal so that Germany will be finished. Don't be like you always are and pretend you can walk on it and sit on it before you really can.

Quote:Gosh, Honey, how can you shoot when your hands are stiff? I wonder if you'd like me to send you a couple of pairs of gloves? You could wear them when you're not shooting, maybe.
Quote:I know you've asked me time and again to live with you as your letters come and not think where you'll be two weeks hence but I just can't.
Quote:Here I am once more and still no mail. It is the start of the fourth week now since your last letter was written.
