My Darling Mark –
Hello Sweetheart ! !
No letter yesterday & no letter today. Kinda slipping aren’t you?
I didn’t write last nite as you know. I went into Leesville for the last time. I had a picture taken which I’m sending in this letter.
Haven’t been doing much lately to talk about.
Honey – I sure miss you! I wish I was with you now.
I got a letter from Ralph today. He likes the Army about as much as I do.
Honey – I can’t write a long letter unless I get one from you.
We’ve been having a lot of physical torture too – hikes & calisthenics!
Honey - I guess I’ll have to close for tonite – write soon.
Good nite Darling!!
Love & Kisses Johnny
I love you Darling – I love you. Miss you more every day honey!
