Help with some Anniversary Edition translation

When my grandparents passed, I was entrusted with the letters they wrote each other during World War II. I have been in the process of transcribing these letters for my extended family. My grandfather knew Gregg Anniversary Edition shorthand and used it regularly in his letters home. I was able to find a Gregg dictionary, which has been very helpful, but on occasion I get stumped. If someone is willing to help me out with this, I would be most appreciative.
