Dear Mom,

Well it won’t be long now honey, two more weeks. I’ve got 64 hours now; flew 3 ½ today, formation and instruments.

Thanks ever so much for the check honey. It sure helped.

I got the wedding rings last night. They’re being sized now, they’ll be ready a week from tomorrow. Boy I’m glad that’s settled, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get them in time. I got plain bands, nothing fancy, but they’re not the usual type. They’re not round, sort of square with a grooved ridge along each edge. I like them, they’re quite different, and match perfectly. Don’t tell Dottie what they look like, I want to surprise her. I hope she likes them.

Well I guess Bobby is in Texas by now. I’m so glad everything worked out O.K.

I don’t think Steve can be my best man, he won’t be able to get here in time. I think I’ll have Tom. I should have him because I’ve known him much longer and I guess he is my best friend in the Army.

I’m sorry you’ve got a cold honey. Is it any better? You take care of yourself angel.

I think it would be best if you got the wings at home, I think it would be easier, and there might not be any down here.

Well angel, I guess I’ll go to the movies with Tom now. I don’t even know what’s there.

Thanks again honey, you’re very sweet to me and I love you so much. I can hardly wait to see you again. Goodnight Sweetheart.

All my love to you angel from—

Your devoted Son
