You'd Be In "Stitches"

you'd be in stitches

Postmarked 25 June 1945
New York, NY

6/24/43 / Dear Roger, / How are you doing? Long time no hear except grapevine method. When I told Dad, Smyrna, he thought Smyrina Turkey. He travelled [sic] there while he was in the service. / Glad you liked our news! Enjoyed your P.S. to Mother. / What are you doing now? Would enjoy a word or two. / Lots of luck from all of us here. / Love, Pegs
Searching for "Roger W. Overton," I could only find one mention, in a Long Island newsletter. If this is the same Roger, he died in 2009 at 85, having been a Staff Sergeant in the Army from 1943-1945. Mr. Overton of Patchogue was an insurance salesman, as well as a member of the Pactchogue Fire Department. Mr. Overton did wed a woman named Margaret - Pegs, perhaps?

Oh, maybe it was Pegs. Wouldn't that be something.
