MAXWELL FIELD, ALA.
I got your letter today. It was sure good to hear from you again. I sure missed your letters, honey. Let’s see….. your questions.
I get my teeth checked every time I ship from and arrive at a post, so they’ve been checked 4 times in the last two weeks. I forgot to tell you I had one filled at Greenville by the G.I. dentist there. The food is swell, just as good as Catawba. As I’ve said before my roommates are swell. Yes, I can have food here. No, I’m not eating chocolate now, I don’t dare start again, as my skin is pretty well cleared up. Also, I am in flight 1.
It makes me very happy to know that you’re doin’ the town, honey. Give my best regards to the Van Allen’s they’re very sweet. How’s is Aunt Ethel, still as nervous as ever? Give her my best. And send my congratulations to Alfred. Boy, a major! That boy’s really getting places what’s he doing?
Everything is swell here honey, the weather has cleared up, and I’m tanning fast! Give my love to Bob + Nan, and all the love in the world to you, my darling mother.
Your devoted Son
