The weather has taken a change for the better today. It’s really swell out. It has been cool and windy as could be. It has a train for some time now and the dust is terrible.
Well I had a big mail call the last two days. It seems as though everyone wrote me a letter. I received 24 letters & cards and three packages from you, dad, Gee, and a pencil from Mildred & Claud and. Also a couple days ago I had a package from Rita. I got quite a kick out of her package, as she sent me some Spam. Ha, ha, if she only knew how we love spam here, but she didn’t know. Same way a lot of Fellows get shoe polish kits & neckties. That’s something a combat soldier never sees or uses. I would know how to act back in garrison again.
Boy I will have enough candy to last me a month now. Thanks a lot for all of it. I guess I might just as well ask for some more kit to tamales and popcorn.
I am enclosing my campaign ribbons and might good Conduct Medal ribbon. Hope probably lose them over here so it’s better I send them home. We haven’t been issued the battle stars for our campaign ribbon, but when we go get them I’ll send them home & you can’t put them on the ribbon for me. Guess this is all for now.
PS. I’ll put the stars on the trip and myself and then send it to
