USS Cavalier WW2 Letter 1944

Written by a sailor serving aboard the USS Cavalier, during WWII, in 1944. From the letter……

I felt like kicking myself for waiting so long. Maybe it’s better that way, though, because you would have been on my mind all of these months, and if I had been thinking as strongly during all that time as I have been lately, it would be almost to the “going over the hill” stage. And I’ll admit that even for a cause so lovely, it’s a hell of a big hill from where I look at it. The only other alternative would be to “blow my top”, and just between us, I’m half nuts already, so I guess it’s better all the way round. I thought I had a lot to say when I started, but I guess the things I’m thinking have to be said, not written.....
