Dear Donna, Well this is a heck of a way a place to be but ts near home if I stay in the state long enough. I left Chanute Fld 15th May and am with the 15th air force. I was kinda lucky in getting a ratting but the exam wasbt too stiff. I put in for W.O. but it will take a little while before I can take an exam am not sure I can pass it, sure would like to. They have me flying as Radar Bombader its lots of fun but the main thing is $.00 more a month there is a round the world coming up am trying to get on it and think i will make it then get up in So Da for a few weeks. I guess this will be the best thing for me for a while maybe it will straighten me up again and maybe I will feel more like working again when I get out.
I thought for a while they were going to send me to the pacific again but got to Camp Storman and asked if I could stay near home and they said yes. This palce sure lives up to it name as Castle it sure is clean and nice. Well have your folks Say hello to them. Hows Mary?
When are you an Joe going to get married? Let me in on the dope here
