3 March 44

Hi Darling:

Moved into a squadron to-day so will have a new address:

Student Squadron 1

L.V.A.A.F.

Las Vegas, Nevada

How are you and what have you been doing? I think I'm a forgotten man, haven't gotten a speck of mail since I've been here, from anyone. Hope I get some mail pretty soon. Chances are that I won't, since I've been doing so much moving around.

(RUSH) Before I forget, please send me some airmail stamps, some 3's + 1's. I can't get to the post office before it closes. Incidentally your present hasn't been purchased yet, since I can't get to the post office. I decided not to get it as I don't have a foot locker or wall locker + hate to leave anything in my barracks [bags?] worry about my clothes in them + not a way to lock them up. However to-morrow I'll have one.

Am writing this in the squadron day room, which is a beauty. It has 2 pool tables. 3 writing booths + about 10 writing tables, easy chairs, books to read, a nice radio + plenty of ash trays + stands, plus pretty curtains; its an ideal recreation room for now.
