Dear Margie

I received your most welcomed letter last night but I did not have the chance to answer it then anyway In fact I only have between five and six thirty to go writing It gets dark so damned early and we are not in garisson anymore so I have a little difficulty keeping my correspondence up to date I have just gotten back from a little detail of unloading freight cars or I would not be writing at present

I use to get letters from Hellen Asenx but when she joined the waves she stopped writing I get an occasional letter from Lou or Junior who is in England also

If I had a chance to live those former days over again I believe I would do the same thing once more It was a great way of living but I do not see how we lived though most of them Much fun was had by all and we also had some pretty good agruements if my memory has not failed me

The town we are near at present is Leesville I got there when it was dark last Saturday night and I did not like it at all I have seen some

pretty bad towns in my days but nothing could compare to this The worst name I can think of now is rotten so that will have to suffice

After almost one week I have finally had a chance to take a shower We wash and shave everyday this was strictly a luxury We had to go two miles by jeep but we didnt get there The showers were given by a Quartermaster Portable shower house It is an ton semi trailor and truck tractor If they could only get a laundary out to us now we would be all set

Well I guess this is all for the present Give my regards to your Mother and Father

As ever

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.
