Dear Mom and Dad,


This is the letter I've been wanting to write ever since I left home. This morning I cleared the mail room. This afternoon, I'll take care of supply and the medics. TOMORROW I'm heading for Pusan. I'm on the Way Home!!!!!!

They told me last night at the movies. Think I didn't get excited. I pulled my last guard duty in Korea last night.

I'll make this a short letter. I've got some more to write. I'll phone as soon as I hit the U.S. at the first opportunity.
