Dearest Darling, Well honey I think its about time I write you a few lines, I haven't received any mail in a week so just get out of the writing mood. I just now got back from a show on the redeployment system sure is a screwed up way of doing things but that's the way they do everything anyhow. Had a little rain today broke as tho it will start again early this evening but I hope not for if it does it will spoil our beer party.
I just heard the latest rumor that official from Regiment. That the 26th is in class II or C.B.I material and that we're supposed to return to the States in August or Sept for jungle training also that we get at least twenty one days at Rome but things change so fast now days anything can happen & those new combat jackets issued.

Well honey I'm going to close for now and wait till the mail come in, who knows I may get a letter from you? Just as I [wrote] that darling I did receive a letter from you tonite & sure was very happy. Donna why write such crazy things as do I love you, do think Id put those words in letters Ive wrote you if I didn't mean it. Got a letter from mother also tonite says my brother Burdette the one that was in Rome will be home soon in fact he's in the States now at Camp Patrick Henry Virginia, gee Well Darling I must close and write my mother & brother before going on guard. I'll write soon again and often as I can. Write soon. Love Verne
