Dear Mom and Dad,

I'm in a replacement company in Pusan. I'm waiting to be assigned to a boat. There's supposed to be a boat leaving the 31 st of January.

I'm going to Fort Sheridan, Illinois, so I'll be close to home when I get my leave.

While here, I met Danny Olin from Calumet City. He should be on the same boat. I also met Dale View from Hammond. Loretta knows him. He used to come over our house. He's a lieutenant.

Well, I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you always.
