I guess I’d better write today even tho I haven’t a letter from you in a week.
We’re leaving today at 3:00 P.M. for 40 day maneuvers & most likely I won’t have a lot of time to write. Gathering from the dope that was put we’re going to be pretty busy day & nite & have a pretty rough time. They’re going to be as close to the real thing as possible.
I missed not hearing from you honey. If you’re getting tired of writing – just say the word & I’ll try & understand.
I haven’t much time – I’ve got some last minute packing to do & shove off.
Hope to hear from you soon. Bye now.
Love Johnny X O X
