“Dear Jean & Jerry,
Today has been cloudy and rainy and is a little chilly in the tent tonight. Seems good, though, to escape the hot sun for a day or two.
Yesterday, two of the fellows and myself visited some friends in a nearby town who are on detached service, also. It rained in the afternoon so we played cards and drank a few beers in their tent. I got back about ten o’clock last night. When I returned I had three letters- from you, Mom, and Beany. Beany sent me a copy of the Stars & Stripes. I enjoyed reading it very much.
Mom mentioned that she was moving into Milly’s home in a few days. I’m glad that Winnie and Milton will be staying with her. What is Milton doing now?
Jack will probably be out this way some time within the next few months if he hasn’t been assigned at a permanent base. It would be very nice to meet him out here.
I’m anxious to hear whether Beany will come home or be reassigned over there. I am getting along fine.
