19 April 44

Hi Darling;

Two more missions to fly tomorrow + Friday. Almost got in a jam - yesterday our crew misunderstood the time we were supposed to fly + did we catch Hades. So today the 8 of us had to mop every room in the operations bldg. Some young 2nd Lt. said we deliberately tried to be late. Boy the guts of some of these guys. That's the army - stuff like that just seems to have to happen every so often.

I talked to the C.O. today about delays + he said that insofar as he knew now, we weren't going to get one. Said that wed [sic.] finish up Friday - graduate Saturday get new flying pay Sun + ship out Monday Afternoon. He said we might get a delay out of [illegible] or wherever we get sent - he didn't know about that + didn't want to say one way or the other. So that's the straight [illegible] as of the present date.
