US Serviceman Learning Maori Dance

“Dear Folks,

Milly has probably told you where I am and how much I’m enjoying myself. It’s certainly different here than what I’ve been accustomed to for the past two years.

I like the people here so very much that I’d almost like to live here permanently. I’ve been given a few days off and I’m spending Christmas with one of the officers of this country’s army. His wife is awfully nice and they have three children, two boys, 16 & 14, and a girl 11. You can imagine how many questions they ask about the U.S.

I certainly enjoyed your Christmas present. I and others who had some thought is was wonderful.

I’ve received a number of Christmas cards and there will probably be more when I get back to camp.

It’s getting to be a long time that I’ve been gone now. Wish I could get home again for awhile, but someone has got to fight this war.

Love, Lorne”
