Being as I have little to write about I will try and answer some of your letters that I have kept with me before I burn them up.  I had a a letter from Rita for a change and she still loves me, ha, ha.  So that helps out some.  Some of the letters I have lost so I won’t be able to answer all of them, and I’ve left some in my other barracks bag when we had to store them before going up to the front.  Well here goes.
