Letter Home – April 20, 1944

19440420-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad;

Very little to write about, but I will write you a few lines to let you know that I am fine. I had a letter from Billy and he said that dad was out digging up the lawn and planting his grass seed as spring must be in the air. The weather here now is swell. It seldom rains any more which is quite a relief. I haven’t been able to see Snook lately. Maybe I get over one of these days. We had a ball game tonight with the Headquarters Company. We won 5 to 4. We were behind 4 to 0 and I went into pitch. Got by pretty lucky and we won. I have been playing shortstop and a was the first time that I have pitched this year. Old Jerry sat up on the mountains and takes in the games. This is the first time combat soldiers ever played ball under combat conditions. Goodbye and write.

Your Son,
