“Dear Jean and Jerry,
Received your V-mail of May 14th- the mail has been coming in slow the past few days. Got a letter from Beany this week but no mail from Mom since of May 8th.
I imagine you are enjoying a vacation now. How is the gas situation? Will you be going to a lake this year? I’ll expect a few snapshots after you get back.
I saw a stage show last night. Joe E. Brown and three others were in the troupe. It was good but we got soaked in a hard rain before the performance was over. It was his 697th show overseas so he has done his share of entertaining the G.I.’s in this war.
I hope to obtain a few souvenirs out here but haven’t had the opportunity as yet. When I do, I’ll send you something.
Where is Jack stationed now? Greet him from me when you write. Hope you have a nice time during your vacation!
