U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES
MAXWELL FIELD, ALA.
Man, it’s getting’ hot! This ol’ Alabama sun really shines. I’m already black.
I got a letter from Ace today. He’s doing fine, taking the same subjects as I. I also heard from Don. He is still as Parris Island, S.C. he seems to like it.
There’s not much news honey. Friday I take a T-64 physical exam. Keep your fingers crossed. I won’t be able to go to town for 4 weeks yet, I don’t get much time off, about 30 minutes a day. Saturday is a regular day here, and on Sunday I have a regular room inspection in the morning. Never a dull moment.
You probably wonder why I asked for the officer’s brass. We wear regular officer’s insignia or our collars here, and I can’t get them anywhere as the supply is all snafued.
Well honey I’m sort of bent, as you can tell by this letter. It’s off to bed with me. By the way, I am a pilot. It seems too good to be true, it was confirmed today. I love you. Give my love to all.
