No letter today – but I said I would write anyway. It’ll have to be short cause we’re falling out in about 10 min to go on the range. I didn’t think we’d go out till tomorrow nite. We’ll stay out till Thurs. so I won’t get a chance to write before then.
I was thinking about you today while we were marching – when all of a sudden we got a right flank – and I keep on marching – a buddy asked – what’s the matter – Kansas City? He’s from K.C. too & was thinking of K.C.
You’ll have to excuse this scratch honey – I’m trying to rush & get thru before we fall out.
A buddy just brought me a beer. It sure tastes good out here.
Well honey I’d better close. I’ll write when I come in again.
Bye now. Write soon. I miss you an awful lot, honey.
All My Love Johnny
