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
P.S. what a hell of a life.
