just in time to get to attention and look General Mark Clark in the face

Nov 16, 1950
Dear Mom & Dad;

Well I’ve got to rush this letter too.  I just got back from a 6  mile hike, ate, got your letter, am writing a letter and expect to hear the whistle any minute.

I was putting up signs in ration breakdown today.  I had a 4 wheel push  truck with a box on top of it.  I stood on the box to reach the

wire I was hanging them on.  Just when I was reaching for the wire someone call attention.  I jumped down just in time to get to attention and look General Mark Clark in the face.  A 4 star boy.  He might have 4 stars but I’m bigger than him.

Tell Purvis’s hello.  I’ve got to fall out in 2 minutes so

Love Karl

P.S. what a hell of a life.
