Italian Rest Camp
Just a few lines letting you know that I'm feeling fine, and hoping that all at home are the same.
Mother, I'm in a rest camp now and it's really O.K. here. They show movies every nite here, and
last nite I and my buddy went to see Madame Curie and we really felt good seeing a movie after so
This morning, we all seen a stage show and enjoyed it very much.
It's really O.K. here not having to worry about shells flying around you, or having to stay awake
all night and jump at every little noise you hear.
We have a P.X. here and we can buy sodas, candy and anything else we need.
I received the sweet Easter card you sent me mother, and I'm only sorry that I can't send one to
you, but mother, even if I can't send any, you can be sure that I'll be thinking of you all on
Easter and wishing you all a very happy Easter.
I guess this is all for now mother, so I'll close with lots of love to you mother dear, daddy and
Your loving Son,
