Dear Mom & Dad,
Greetings once again from Vietnam. I am sitting in the mess hall here at
Blackhorse watching the new Jerry Lewis show on our new T.V. I believe I told you
before that all the cooks chipped in and bought a T.V. It's real nice and we enjoy
it very much.
Things are going pretty well here for us. The troop is still out in the field and
we are cooking one meal a day here to airlift to them. I haven't been out yet and
don't know if I will be going out or not. From what we understand, the troop should
be coming in pretty soon.
Time is going by fast. I have 121 days left, tomorrow. I put in for another
R&R to Bangkok yesterday. The R&R is for the 25th to the 30th of January.
I hope I get it. I will have to wait a couple of weeks before I find out.
Things around here are building up rapidly. We have been getting a lot of new
mess equipment and they are building up the troop areas. This war is going to be
over very soon, I think. Either that or they are going to keep us here for a while.
They are building this place for people to actually live here. I hope so,
Oh well, with 121 days left I don't really care. I am going to cut this letter
short because I'm getting interested in the the T.V. show. As of yet, I haven't
received your package with the tapes but I did receive the other two packages. Also,
I would appreciate it if you would send the money I asked for. Thank you. Take
By for now!
