I want some letters; They are the only thing I look forward to

Oct. 27, 1950
Dear Mom & Dad;

I have finally found time to write.  I have been working steady for 2 days.  We scrubed down the floor from 6:30 P.M. to 11:30 P.M. last nite.  Then they made up at 4:30 A.M. and we worked like the devil today.  I got into the hardest job in the army.  Ration Breakdown in Supply.  I hauled 80 sacks potatoes, two times, Sugar,  50# meat Pks, 160 cases (24 pks) milk, countless other things.  Just when I started to rest tonite and write you a letter we had to fall out and go for a 2 mile hike.  I’m going to get a transfer to trucks, Infintry, or anything.  The more I worked the louder they yelled.  I also swept the warehouse 4 times when I was supposed to have a break.

It rained last nite. The sand is terrible.  Yesterday the  wind blew so hard, I had to back into it.  I’ve got sand in my eyes, ears, and everything.  The Californians claim the state line ends at Camp Cooke.

I don’t care if you just send some news paper clippings.  I want some letters.  They are the only thing I have to look forward to,  and I really enjoy them.  I was glad to hear from dad to.

Jerry Savary wrote me a nice letter.  Also Mrs. Beam sent one.

I have just been informed I have to help scrubb some more floors so I will close until then;
Love Karl

P.S. I’m sure disgusted.  send some good news.

    I’m not sure if the Californians are dividing up North, South or maybe just the Western boundary of their fine state.
