diddn’t[sic] need this many men against Reds in Korea. And this is just a little country. There’s no doubt that we will win. Its just how long and how many more casualties it will take.

Ive only got a few more months to go. But they will probbly[sic] be the longest months of my life. This place makes you older before your time. I guess all I can do is keep praying and hopeing[sic] for the best.

Well enough for that. I see the Rangers are falling apart. I hope they can still get in the playoffs. I heard the Yankees are going to fix up the Stadium a little bit. To bad mommy diddn’t[sic] have some money on the number. My eyes are still pretty good, 20-20.

Oh! You probbly[sic] got the camera. Hope it’s a good one. It should be (895.00) Use it as you please. That’s about it. Tell everybody I said hello. I’ll try to write when possible. Give Lisa and Wm. Vin a kiss for me. Take care for now.

Vincent
