The problem that we ran wasn't very hard. The only thing that was really hard was the walking 18
mi. out and 18 mi back, but, we're supposed to be tough. At least the General told us we were anyway.

that always fell out of hikes pretty often. I heard that they will be sent over as M.P.s in the
places we have captured. So mom, maybe it's better that I was, and still am able to take all these
hikes we have. I've never fell out of a hike yet, and I don't intend to.
Well mother, I guess this war won't last long now.

Your loving Son,
God bless you mother and keep you safe for me. I love you mother, always remember that
