Camp Forrest Tenn

July 20, 1942

Dearest Folks

Must write you a line or two to tell you Iím back out with the 129. They sure have been sending me around. Iím transferred to M. Co and I guess we are going to more some place I donít know where. Anyway a different camp.

We came back this morning. This is the same company that Jerome Baum is in. Most of the guys from A.B.C. & D. Cos were transferred to E. F. G. H. I. K. L. & M so my address will be

PFC Wesley R Slaymaker

Co M 129 Inf 33 Div A.P.O.

Camp Forrest Tenn

This moving is nothing to get worried about. This new division (is) coming in, we just got to move. Probably will have a better camp. Maybe on the Coast some place or even closer to home. I sure hope so.

I was on guard all night last night so am pretty tired today. Itís the middle of the afternoon, I havenít had nothing to do all day only get straightened around. I havenít got any mail from you for quite a few days guess it got mixed up in so many addresses.

Iíll probably get a furlough after we get moved. Iím going to see about it tonight maybe they can tell me something.

Well, folks thatís all I know. I donít know yet if Iím going to drive over here or not thatís what they sent me over as.

Iím going to sent Bettyís letters home so when they come donít open them please probably you couldnít understand them any how. I may send some other stuff the letters will be in a separate bundle.

I feel good and hope all of you do too. Donít worry please and Iíll write more soon.



P.S. Iím going to send some pictures I got kicking around here. None of me tho.
