Dear Lois,


Hello gal! How are you? Are you saving all of your money so you can take me out when I get back? I'll be leaving the forsaken hole in one hundred twenty eight days.

Damn! It was really cold last night. As you probably know by now, I pull a lot of guard duty now. This morning it was coldest between 4 and 6 a.m.

Has T.F. played any football games yet? What are the top tunes? How is school? The sun is coming out now, I hope it warms up pretty soon.

If you're learning to dance in school you ought to be a "smart stepper" when you graduate. It's a pretty good deal. I suppose the boys don't take it seriously though. Who teaches you these dancing lessons.

I you got your camera fixed, why the hell ain't I getting any pictures?

I'm going now. Just say hello to everyone for me.

Your Bro,
