I thought I’d better write tonite while I have a chance. We’re supposed to go out tomorrow nite & stay out till Fri. I’m going to try & get off & go to L.A. for 3 days. Almost a week & no letter from you. You’re slipping honey.
I just came back from the dispensary – I had to have this heat-rash treated. It’s driving me nuts!
Sat – I was out all day on a navigation problem charting roads in our maneuver area.
Tonite our Bu. played ball against 2nd Arm’d Regt. & beat 2-1. They told everybody they had to go, so I didn’t go. They’re going to try & make us go to a show tonite too. By the sounds of things I guess we’ll have to go anyway.
Well honey – they’re hollering there heads off. I guess I’ll go down & come right back. Bye now
Write Soon – honey.
All My Love Johnny
