I was on detail today. Put lids on ammunition boxes this morning + cut down sagebrush this afternoon. I have sore hands to show for this afternoons work. I also have a red nose + forehead (it looks very pretty too so there) that sun is really hot + bright, the nights are also really cool. My appetite has increased 100% + I'm beginning to feel like a new man. This air is invigorating. The food is very good. Incidentally the mess hall is just across the street! They serve breakfast from 4 AM - 7 AM Dinner 11 AM - 1 PM Supper 4 PM - 7 PM. I guess they stay open long because of different times men finish classes etc. They really give you plenty to eat. I hope I don't get K.P. I hope. I'd rather be outside in the open + get some more red nose -

Well I gotta wash out some socks + underwear before the lights go out.

I love you baby just in case you'd forgotten. Didn't get a chance to go to the Px today. Mebbe I can make it to morrow.

Signing off [pootie?]

All my love

your baby


P.S. I love you-

P.P.S. I'll probably have a different address next wk. or soon as I get assigned to a squadron. It'll be at the base here, but a different part of camp. Will let you know soons I change, so I can get your letters sooner.
