Darling Mark –

Hello Sweetheart!!

Received your letter yesterday – but was out in the field & didn’t have a chance to answer. I just finished writing a letter to Cec. I’m writing by a flashlight now.

We go out for 5 days next week. We had a lot of fun this week out. We fired a combat course with M.G.’s. & small arms & fired the 37 M.M. – A.T. also.

37mm Anti-Tank Gun

We didn’t do much today. Most of the time I was keeping out of the “Louies” paths.

Honey – it’s a beautiful nite out – how about a little lovin’? You bet we’re going to make up for the kisses we’ve missed. I can taste them already – oh

Honey – much as I hate to I’m sending the picture back. I’d like to know who you’re giving it to tho.

I plan to go to L.A. next week end – if nothing goes wrong.

I’d like to call you some time honey – when will you be home???

Well – honey I’d better close for tonite & get to bed. I’ve got to get up earlier in the morning & go on another navigation problem.

Those guys that got lost were from Camp Young – about 150 miles from here.

Write soon – sweetheart!!                    X O X

  1. The grind is wearing him down, sounds like. Really wish you had the letters SHE wrote to HIM!!! Jason sent all his letters back to me to keep for him. I really wonder what happened to her letters to him.
