Dear Mom & Dad,
Greetings once agan from Vietnam. Things are still the same here. We are
still here at Tan Son Nhut. I am still looking forward to going on R&R the 19th
(Oct.). I think I will be a little shy of cash. I bought a new camera and it
set me back a few bucks. Right now I have $250. This will be enought for
R&R but I am thinks about when I get back. Take another $100 out of my bank
account and send it along. I might borraow about $50 before I go.
The camera I bought today is a Petri 35mm. It's a beautiful camera. I am
also sending along my voters registration card. Please fill in the correct address
and send it to the proper people so I can get my absentee ballot. I don't know who
to send it to so I am sending it along to you. I am going to make this short because
I must get to work so take care.
By for now!
Please send the $100 as soon as you can.
