Dear Mom & Dad,
Howdy! we had a pretty good lunch today. I don’t know what it was but it was better than usual.
I seen a show last nite and went to church this morning.
Yesterday was supposed to be a holliday but I worked until 1:30. What a raw deal. The sargent was looking for a 5 man detal just as I was getting out of bed this morning. You ought to have seen me getting out the side door. I really made time.
Dad! maybe you ought to keep the Chevy for a while. If it is in real good shape it would help you if a war com on or when I got back I would have something to use. I seen one of the new Mercury’s drive by. What a car.
I received $39 pay for last month. I hope Truman didn’t lose his vacation over that.
Say we might get 8-10 days for Christmas. Just in case I do, what would you plans be? If you couldn’t ma,e it here, I would come home. It will be swell either way.
Well I’ve got to clean my Carbine
