Italian Rest Camp
Just a few lines letting you know that I'm O.K. and in the best of health.
I'm still in the Rest Camp and although I do drill through the day I still have it pretty easy
here. We've had a few nite problems but they're not so tough. The nites I have off I usually go
to the show which isn't too far away from my bivouac are.
I haven't been able to locate Joe yet, because the Red Cross chapter that we had here doesn't
have an information bureau, but I'll keep on trying to see him after not seeing him for so long.
I'm hoping that Phil is still around home and not preparing to leave the states any more.
Well mother, I guess this is all for now so I'll close this letter with lots of love to you
mother dear, daddy and the kids and hope it finds you all in the best of health.
Your loving Son,
Mother please don't worry about me because I'm O.K. and in the best of health. God bless you
mother, and keep you always.
