Dear Mom & Dad,

Greetings once again from Vietnam.  This is just a short note to let you know that I made it back from the field OK and I am now back at the trains area at Bien Hoa.  I was out for a week and I will be back here  for a week and then back to the field again for a week and so on until this operation is over.  Actually, the field is not all that bad.

I am going to send you seven boxes of slides in a couple of days along with a tape commentary.  I think that you will enjoy it.  Please play the first portion of the tape for the instructions.  If you here a lot of noise for about five minutes, you have the right tape.  Don't get discouraged.  The instructions will be along shortly.

It's late and I must go to bed.  So I will sign off now.

By for now!

"Sp/5" Bob

PS: Date of Specialist 5th class - Aug. 16, 1968.  You may now address my letters, Sp/5.
