19431023-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad,
I just received about 12 letters from you all from them month of September. Mail is very slow here I guess because we are so unsettled. It’s a shame to disappoint you and not be home for Christmas, but you can’t win war at home. And another thing, I don’t look for the Seventh army anymore, as I am glad to be out of it. We have a good commanding general now. Did I ever tell you I have been here since September 20. We’ve landed below Salerno. All of the other divisions are glad that we came over and the things seem to be going our way pretty good. I’ve received all of my packages so far and only one comic book and I received that today. When did you start the subscription in September? Ask dad when he is going to write me? I have been looking for a letter for a long time from him. Write and tell me how the allotment has been coming since I had it changed. Then will find out about it. Good bye and write.
Your Son
