Hello honey !
Well, I’m back at the same old grind again. Oh- how I’d like to be back in K.C. with you! It’ll take me a month to get used to Army routine again.
I wished I had caught that train Sat. morning. We had to work till noon today getting vehicles checked.
We go on a 3 day problem starting tomorrow. How I hate that. It’s so damp & wet in the mornings (the poor boy).
I’m going to try & get out of it, so I can take the Air Corps test Tues.
I’ve got complications now. We have a new C.O. now & I’ll have to get his permission & I hear he’s plenty rough. (Not too bad though - )
A week from tomorrow we go on maneuvers. We go to Texas & then work up towards Kent. & Tenn. I sure hope I get to take the test before maneuvers.
Right now honey I’m laying on my bunk (alone & it’s unusual for him to lie down alone.) & writing letters. I’ve got a lot of packing of field equipment tonite sometime.
OH! Honey how I miss you!! (Ever so much) I’ve just been informed that I’m on guard tonite. (But that will give me loads of time thinking of you.) I don’t mind, I won’t have to go out till Tues now & I’ll have a chance to see about the Air Cadet test tomorrow.
Well honey I’ll have to close now & shower & shave. I have to stand guard mount at 5:00. No rest for the wicked!
I’ll have to finish this quick – that “kids” here again & writing in between the lines.
I don’t think I’ve ever written a letter that he hasn’t been around to pester me.
He’s got the first page now writing on it, so honey what you see in pencil is his writing – I have to humor him. Sometimes he makes me “so mad”!
Bye now – honey
Please Answer Soon.
All My Love
