I Miss You !!
All My Love X O XXXXXXXX
My Darling Mark –
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
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
I miss you honey X X yo tea mo X O X
