Somewhere in the Philippines

My darling,

Hope you are getting along alright. Haven’t gotten any mail yet but hope it will catch up with me before so very much longer. Sure do miss getting letters and especially from you.

Have been taking it fairly easy around here. Sure do get plenty of sleep and I don’t have any trouble sleeping on the cots. We are having movies every night but most of them are real old.

Hope your mother is getting along alright now. Has your brother gotten home yet. Love to your Mother.

Love always,
“Boobie”
