July 9, 1942

Dear Folks

Must write you a line or two to tell you I am ok.

I got moved back into camp to a quartermaster battalion to teach new drivers and work until they are able to take care of supplies.

I havenít done much all day, just sat around. Suppose Iíll get a good work out tomorrow.

Please excuse this letter cause I havenít got a very good place to write. Poor excuse donít you think? Just in a hurry. I sure am tired, donít know what makes it. I can tell you tomorrow night how much I like this place. It sure is swell to take a shower and shave with hot water. The electric lights are nice too.

Iím not going to write Virginia a letter tonight. There really isnít any thing to tell her.

I didnít get any mail yet. A sergeant went to see if we had any. There was 6 of us come back; 2 drivers, 2 cooks and 2 Sgts. All pretty swell guys. Put the same old address on my letters and some of us will got back to our company and get it. Iíll write more tomorrow night.

Lots of Love and Kisses
