Dearest Gee.

Didn’t get any letter from you today, honey, but I got a nice four pager from Mildred C. and one from the Reader’s Digest people wanting me to send them my permanent APO number. They were explaining to me that APO 4994 was not a permanent APO and as the Digest came second class mail they couldn’t mail it until they had received my other APO number. I wonder where, and what, they think I’ve been doing the past two years? You will probably think I’m drunk but I’ve got to tell you this — we have a different APO number again! It’s back to 544 now. It is all as confusing to me as it is to you. One thing it has certainly caused me to write a hell of a lot of letters lately. Suppose you like that, huh!

We don’t got no unit censor to censor our mail no more but still have the base censor to worry about tho. If he finds too much in a letter in the line of info it don’t set very well. I tried the other day to tell you what army I was with and the whole works, but the censor (our own) gave it back to me. Nice people. Pretty soon I’ll be able to tell you exactly where I am and maybe more dope, then you won’t have to worry on that score. Or do you worry about me as much as I worry about you? Sometimes I think you need the old Barber treatment. Do you reckon you can still do those gymnastic tricks like old times? I’m afraid the doc will have a field day trying to get the kinks out. Sure miss you, honey. I’m sure sweating out five more points. I see in the Stars and Stripes where troops are entitled to one more star for Germany. The Central Europe campaign. We are entitled to it and it would make me a total of 86 points. I am on pins and needles waiting to find out all about it. Give the stamps to Rudy. Don’t forget the newest APO #544. Sure love you and miss you. Hope I see you soon.

So long now.
