This handwritten letter, dated July 31, 1942, is written to Jewel Jennings in Jackson, Mississippi from her husband, Kelvie Jennings, at a Marine training camp in San Diego, California. The letter discusses his activities at the training camp, who he's written, and his trip from Jackson to San Diego. The letter goes on to advise Jewel on how to handle some of their personal affairs in his absence and offers her some encouragement. The last page of the letter bears some slight damage. An airmail postage stamp is placed in the upper right of the envelope and is postmarked San Diego, California, July 31, 1942.
