Just a few lines to let you know how I am. Well mother yesterday (Sun) the first thing I did
was eat breakfast, and then my buddy and I went to church, the 10 oclock mass. After mass we
walked around the camp, stopped in the P.X. bought some pop and candy bars and then we went back

worry, because it will be because I won't have very much time to myself while I'm training, but I
will try to write as often as I can and every chance I can, and mother please don't worry about me
because I'm O.K. and feeling fine.
Mother I recieved a letter from Rosie yesterday, which is the only letter I've received so far
its 7:30 at night now and we just had mail call and I was expecting a letter from you, did you write
to me mother? You probably did but it didn't get here yet, I hope I get it tomorrow, at least I'm
going to pray that I do.
Mother, when Rosie comes up to see you, does she come up alone?
Mother when you write please tell me everything about home and the kids and even the news, here
you don't know nothing, or read nothing, there's no papers sold here.
Well, mother, I'll close now with love to you, daddy and the kids.
