Dear Folks

Will write you a few lines to let you know I am still here, and canít say exactly when we will leave, any minute. Everything is packed and ready to roll.

There isnít any news but at least you will know I havenít left yet. Wish I could be able to write everyday, but donít worry please. Iíll be fine and donít forget to write so I have some mail when I get there.

Thatís about all I know. Iím going to take a bath and get cleaned up once more as you never can tell when Iíll get a chance again.

Iíll put the address in here as the other letter might get lost and you would still get it in here. I wonít write Virginia but will Betty so keep her informed as about me, if you hear. (Virginia I mean).

Lots of Love


Pfc Wesley R Slaymaker 37146011 Co M 129 Inf A.P.O. 1195 % Postmaster San Francisco California

Donít worry.
