Description

This handwritten letter, dated September 9, 1942, is written to Jewel Jennings in Jackson, Mississippi from her husband, Kelvie Jennings, at a Marine Corps training camp in San Diego, California. The letter discusses his work on base, what he is doing to prepare for her travel, and the fact that his superiors are discouraging privates from moving their wives to San Diego. The letter goes on to instruct Jewel on what Kelvie thinks is appropriate to do with their personal items and the status of his job. The letter is written on Army and Navy YMCA stationary with an image of the San Diego YMCA building in the upper left. The envelope bears a red six cent air mail postage stamp and a postmark for San Diego, California, September 9, 1942.
