Quite a few days have passed since I last wrote you, so I think it is about time for another letter from these parts. Everything going great guns with me and I hope the same for everybody back there. We are still enjoying our rest and getting plenty to eat. I still get the Speedometer and although it takes some time for it to reach me, I still enjoy every word of it. It sure makes me feel good to hear how everybody is doing their best to help get this war over. All of us fellows wonít ever forget what you folks are doing and weíll do our best to get this thing over.
I just came back from a 7 day furlough and I guess you know that I enjoyed it. Nothing like a good soft bed to sleep in after a year of sleeping on a cot. And as always when I got back there was plenty of work for us to do. Iím getting to be a real salesman, I have made out almost 60 War Savings Bonds for the fellows, maybe I should come back to the States and go on tour.
How do you like the news? I guess you like it pretty good but I think we like it a lot better. Well some work just came in so Iíll have to close this commique, Iíll write again. Tell everybody hello for me. I still haveínt found Dorothy Lamour.
