V-Mail December 28, 1943

Dearest Folks: It's been some time since I have written to you. There aint anything much I can write but if you like to hear from me as well as I do you, anything will do. I have received some more of my Christmas packages. Got two from you , one from Jean, one from Aunt Ruth, one from Aunt Mattie, one from Aunt Rinnie, cigarettes from Ray Carlisle. I still have some more to come yet. I got some swell pictures from Aunt Francis. She said she sent me a package too, but I haven't got it as yet, Audette either.

I sure can't understand why you hadn't heard from me. Sure hope you have by now. You never want to worry when you don't hear from me. I'll write whenever I can. You know no news is good news. My pen sure doesn't work good. I think there's water in the ink. It isn't any wonder too, there's water in everything else.

Christmas was very much the same as Thanksgiving, just another day. We got our Turkey the 26th. It was a pretty good meal, but nothing like you see in pictures of mess gears full of Christmas dinners.

I hope this finds you all well and happy and keeping plenty warm. Wish I dared tell you how hot is here, just to think of it would warm you up. The boys are all fine. Jerry is sitting hear laughing at some of the boys. I'm running out of space, so will close. Goodnight and good luck. Love-------Wesley
