I Miss You !!

My Darling Mark –

Hello Sweetheart!!

No letter today – but I guess I owe you a couple anyway. Right now honey I’m not in a very good mood! We were to have a retreat parade tonight & wear our blouses. We fell out & it starts to rain – we got good & wet & then they call it off. I just got my blouse out of the cleaners today too!

I’ll never understand this Army!

We got off that problem last nite at 10:30 & got to sleep this morning till 10:00!!

We cleaned rifles for about 2 hrs. this afternoon & then was off. Pretty soft day. Tomorrow we have an inspection of all equipment & clothing. I’ve got to hide a lot of stuff tonite.

Well honey there goes chow – I finish this when I get back.   X

7:00 P.M.
Back again honey – After chow we had to sign the payroll for next months pay & I finally got paid tonite for last month.

Its still raining out – I suppose it will be all night. Gosh honey I wish I was with you now I miss you so much!!! I’d like to be kissing you to my hearts content. I’d probably never stop tho!

Honey – I guess I’ll take in a show now & break this monotony around here.

I’ll write again tomorrow nite honey.

Goodnite now – darling!
Write soon.                X               O               X
         All My Love        Johnny
