Dear Mom & Dad;
Howdy! Well I’ve finally going to have an evening off. I think this is Sat. I worked all morning and some of the guys had to go back. They had been put on the SHT list. I offered to help the Corpral in charge so he said he needed someone. I was
put in charge of some men, by the Sargent, to clean up a wharehouse. They were pretty sore about the whole think and I had my hands full. I tried not to make them mad at me, but yet get the job done. One of them had a full charge of a grocery store in Chicago. He tried to mess around but I got on his tail. The other guys got to working after I took him down a few notchs. In fact the Sargent said it was a real good job.
I won my first set in the tournement. 2 straight games. I’m sure eating the heck out of the cookies. I’ve got them hid real good so just I know where they are.
