12 March 45

Hi Darling,

Got 3 V-Mails + 1 airmail of the 26th And letters from Mom, Jack Mooney + Maggie Norman.

I didn't write last night - was on the early guard shift 6 - 10 + went right to yon sock.

Jack tells me he's back at the Chicago plant again - having a tough time trying to find a place for the wife + baby. He also sent a snapshot of both, which I'm sending along to you.

Norman hasn't been moved from New Guinea as yet otherwise she didn't have much to say.

Mom said that Kent was home for the weekend - said he looked pretty nice in uniform. Too bad you didn't get to see him. Also said you'd moved to the new place but she hadn't seen it as yet.

Okay hon, I've marked our phone no in a lot of different places - now all I have to do is remember the places.

No we don't have a camera man in our tent. At present we are five. Vince, Mac, Larry, Bob Goss (our new ball gunner) + myself. We sincerely hope it stays thus cause for a change we can move around fairly well without stepping all over each other.
