Characters:
Pvt. Joe Burch; Sgt. Mulvaney; Pvt. Lem Corbett; Sgt, Willie MacPherson

Indexer Notes

Irv Novick is credited to both pencils and ink on G.I. Joe, and Giacoia only on ink in 1952, so this could be Novick on both.

Characters:
Pvt. Sid Rothbalatt; Pvt. Ski

Indexer Notes

Schroeder is credited both pencils and ink on Buddies in 1953 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but the inking here is unfamiliar. He is best known for his Airboy stories, and had some covers and stories for G.I. Joe in 1955-56.

Indexer Notes

Dan DeCarlo is credited to both pencils and ink on Wendy the WAF in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but Rudy Lapick is also credited as his personal inker, and the inking is not to be distinguished from other signed DeCarlo/Lapick stories in G.I. Joe.

Script:
?
Letters:
typeset

Genre:

Indexer Notes

Not an ordinary Letters page, but a continuing story told by means of letters from a G.I. to wife at home.

Indexer Notes

Novick is credited to both pencils and ink in 1950-54 by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the art here is very similar to his credited work in All-American Men of War and The Silent Knight.
