Description

This handwritten letter, dated July 25, 1942, is written to Jewel Jennings in Jackson, Mississippi, from her husband, Kelvie Jennings while he is stationed at a marine training camp in San Diego, California. The letter describes the daily training routines, what they do on their down time, what he is studying, the activity around the camp, and his wish to get on the ""payroll end."" The letter goes on to discuss the weather in San Diego, personal business she needs to take care of at home, who he's written to, and encourages her in his absence. The letter is written on marine corpse stationary with the Semper Fidelis logo in the upper left corner of the paper and the envelope. The postage area on the envelope is stamped ""Marine Corps Base Free"" and is postmarked San Diego, California, July 25, 1942.
