U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES
MAXWELL FIELD, ALA.
This will have to be short and sweet, honey. Boy this schedule is something. I’m on the go from six to nine-thirty. My courses now consist of Naval Identification, Code, Maps and Charts, and Physics, and they’re quite a bit tougher than my first. In N.I. we have two seconds to identify the ships. Those hairy boats look all alike to me. I’m taking eight words a minute now in code plus five words a minute by visual or light flashes. Man that’s rave. If you watch the light you can’t see where you write the figures, and if you watch the figures, you can’t see the light, great fun, eh! The maps and charts is a very interesting course, where we learn to construct, read, and plot courses on maps. The physics is the same old stuff I had in high school and C.T.D.
Tell Judy, Bob, and Nan that I’ll write them soon. Really hon, I’ve got no time, I have hardly time to read the letters much less write them. But keep writing honey, you have no idea how much I enjoy all your letters, the more the merrier. I love you with all my heart, goodnight sweetheart
