Guard Duty

Guard Duty

“Dear Jean & Jerry,

Today I’m doing guard duty as commander of the guard. I went on duty last night at five o’clock and will be through at five tonight. A new ruling gives all non-coms this extra duty so I have my turn at it for the first time. I was a little nervous before guard mount but things went over O.K. The officer of the day is a swell fellow so things are running smoothly.

The last time I stood guard mount was with Co. M a long time ago. I s’pose you remember about it, Jerry, when you were in Co. M outfit. I’m only allowed to sleep two hours out of every six so I’ve been writing a few letters. This is my seventh one since last night.

I got a letter from Dolores yesterday along with yours. She seems to be happy again that her and Beany are reconciled and said she had a wonderful time in St. Louis. I answered her letter last night.

Gosh, you write about 20º below zero- sounds rough! Since our wind storm, the weather has been fairly mild again here.

I see you are managing O.K. on the gas ration tickets. I believe you’ll notice the rationing a lot more, though, this spring and summer again when the weather gets nice and you’ll want to go out a lot more. You’ll have to use your bicycle or have you sold it by now? Jean can ride on the handle-bars.

I saw that show ‘The Black Swan’ and enjoyed it very much. We get a lot of new shows at our theatres here in camp.

Your mentioning of Jean’s Sunday dinner really made my mouth water! Roast turkey breast and dressing- sounds delicious! We have our fowl once in a while but these army birds seem to be all wings and necks.

I hope you hear about your new job soon, Jerry. What does Tittle say about the possibility of your leaving? Men are hard to get now, too!

I’m expecting a letter from Beany anytime now. He has never mentioned to me yet about the grenades, etc. He must have just started with it.

Mom writes that Dad is better- he had been to the doc again recently. The doctor wants him to lay off until the first of April. I wonder if he will ever go back to work.

I keep thinking about Lorne- Milly must be worried all the time. I wrote him last Sunday- I mentioned that you had sent him cigars. Milly thinks there may be a possibility of his returning to the States after that campaign- I sure hope so!

Well kiddo, bye for now. I am always looking for your letters!

Love, Cliff”
