U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES
MAXWELL FIELD, ALA.
All I have time for is a short note honey, as lights are out in 10 minutes. Boy it’s swell here, but plenty tough. I’m on the go every minute. I have 30 minutes spare time a day for recreational purpose and letter writing, so don’t worry if my letters aren’t’ coming regularly.
I was issued a Carbine Rifle here, I also get another set of underwear and khakis, which we are now wearing. I haven’t gotten the cadet insignia and hat as yet, we probably won’t get them here.
As I said this field is beautiful. B-24’s, B-17’s, and B-25’s fly over all day long. The houses, they are houses, remind me of a section of San Antonio, you know with those rough tile roofs and yellow stucco walls. Everything is well kept. There is green grass everywhere, and flowers. (God what a letter!)
Excuse this monstrosity but I’m terribly rushed. Oh, oh, there’s lights out. I love you honey, give my love to all.
Your devoted Son
