Letter to Mom and Dad [June 22, 1953]

Pvt. E. L. Pierzchalski US55263754
Hqtrs.Btry. 48 F.A.Bn.
A.P.O. #7

June 22, 1953

Dear Mom and Dad,

There's been quite a few changes since I last wrote. I'm no longer in liaison. I'm back in the battery. Not in Radio but in the Wire Section. And I'm no longer a Corporal, I'm a PFC again.

It means I won't be getting four points per month anymore. I'm farther in the rear. I get three points per month now. I told you before that I wanted to get off Liaison. Well, now I am. I feel better. No more "sweating it out". I'm not with the 32 nd Infantry anymore. I'm safer.

Now that I'm back in the battery, I'll have to take a lot more chicken shit but I think I may be able to take it.

That's that, I'm tired now. I'll sign off before the lights go out.
