12 April 44

Hi Darling;

Well the old man is kinda pooped out to nite [sic.]. Was up on a mission this afternoon for 3 hrs + 15 minutes. Fired at targets on the ground (plane going 225 mph) which slide by fast. And shot at towed targets. That took us about an hr + a half the rest of the time the pilot took us sight seeing. Cruised all over Death Valley just shortly before sundown. The mountains looked very beautiful with the long shadows + all. I hope we get to fly over The Grand Canyon before we leave, they say it's really something from the air.

It wasn't bad at all today. Believe me though those bombers are no luxury liner + are cramped for space due to all the equipment in the ship.
