1943 World War II Seabees Postcard with sad message1943 World War II Seabees Postcard with sad message1943 World War II Seabees Postcard with sad message

This World War ll postcard has the logo of the Seabees on the face. The Seabees were the US Naval Construction Battalions. The face of the card has some bleed through from the postmark on the back. Otherwise the card is in very good condition.

The reverse of the card is postally used with a US Navy postmark, August 20, 1943. The sender has written FREE in the space for the stamp as the military was given free postage. The card was mailed from Camp Perry, Virginia. The reverse of the card has a message and address.

The message is sad and unfortunately, this sailor got a "Dear John" by lack of writing and this message is his response to his girlfriend. Sadly, by not writing, his girlfriend was letting him know that she was no longer the girl back home and was moving on. Dear Ethyl, If you don't want to write to me that's OK with me. But if I did something you didn't like let me know. BOB

GENEALOGY: The card is addressed to Ethyl Tarant. RR#1 Plymouth, Indiana
