Dear Tommie,

How are you? How's the football season coming along?

Here is a patch from the 25 th "Lightning" Division. I told mother that I put it in her letter but I forgot to, anyway—here it is.

It's getting cold. How is it over there?

I'm still a PFC. I'll probably stay that way. I keep getting in too many fights over here.

How come you haven't written more often? In about six months, all I got from you is a half page.

I hear that you did pretty good playing baseball this summer. Keep it up.

In 88 more days I'll be on my way back home. I sure will be glad to get back. I don't like anything over here. I miss everything and everyone at home.

Well, this is only a few words to let you know that I haven't forgotten you.

Your Bro
