Dear Folks

Iím writing you a note tonight as I wonít be able to tomorrow. We are going on our overnight bivouac. Wonít be back until Friday night so donít expect any letter tomorrow.

I was on KP yesterday and guard today. I sure am getting the detail cause itís my last I hope.

Is the roads as bas as they were?

I think probably I wonít get to come home until the 6th. Iíll write and tell you as soon as I know for sure.

Well folks I hope everything is ok and you feel good. Iíll be seeing you soon.

Must shave and take a shower.


Wesley P.S. I got your cake and it sure was swell. It sure made a hit with all the boys. It really stood the trip swell.
