Personal Letter


[Translation begins]




My Darling,

Well we got another first Louie on our side today. He says we’re going to leave at one o’clock Saturday. Gosh with all this brass sayin’ so we ought to leave sometime Saturday. I hope so. If I do leave at one we ought to be able to make the dance honey.

Again there’s nothing new. I flew aerial today, scored 135 hits. I’m still top man with an overall average of 57%. Dickey, the runner up, has 46%. Today was for record in aerial I guess since we fire ground tomorrow again.

I got a letter from Mom today, she’s fine and sends her love to you. Everybody’s fine. Bobbie’s a little blue I guess, but the kids haven’t got the measles yet.

There’s absolutely nothing to write honey. Everyday down here is the same. Ground school (which we finished today) P.T., chow, and flying in the afternoon. The same thing day in and day out.

Gosh I’ll be glad to see you angel. It seems like years. I love you so much and miss you like nobody’s business.

Until I see you again I’ll be kinda half living. You sure make a difference in my life baby.

I love you. You will always have all my love- always.

Your devoted husband
