Somewhere in the Philippines.

My darling,

Another quiet day is just about over and I’m waiting around in my tent for the movie. The main problem at the present time is trying to keep myself occupied.

Certainly feel lost in not receiving any mail. Sure am looking forward to the day that my mail catches up with me. Have written the hospital to forward all my mail to me. Also have written two fellows back there.

Hope that the war bonds are coming in every month. Let me know if they miss and I’ll try to get it straightened out. How much are you making now? Suppose they charge you quite a bit for board.

Miss you so much

Love always,
“Boobie”
