Got those two juicy airmails of the 17th and 25th today. Got a nice long typewritten jobby from Sis too. Sure am tired tonight. Went through a few maneuvers today. Threw so many smoke grenades I feel like a fireman on a busy day. The way Chick describes our quarters you’d think we were in garrison. I’d rather have his. I had a very nice foxhole build for two. It was about four feet deep except when it rained. Then at times the hole got deeper. Now it’s just a matter of sweating them out. As long as they are just close ones a guy can’t kick too much. Yes, Chick has met Close, Lee, Hoffman, and Kerrershon. He met them before tho. I didn’t know the camera deal was going to cause such a rumpus or I wouldn’t have said anything. I can do okay without it so don’t worry. The big one is too big to lug around so don’t send it. Yes, I recognized Bernadine right away. She’s quite a glamour puss in that bathing suit. How’s her romance coming along? It’s swell you had such a nice time in Chicago. They should send some of those guys over, it wouldn’t be so crowded on the trains then. Sho’ would like to be on one of those jobs myself with a one way ticket. Guess I’ll have to close my trap now. Sure do love you and miss you. Be good.
