Fort Dix, N. J.

Dear Mom,

Happilly (sp?) I received your letter to-day. Well, our foot lockers were taken to Port of Embarkation Sunday so I expect it won’t be too long before we sail or fly or entrain or what ever to where ever we are going!!

We have been off duty since Sunday just hanging around—waiting for our orders—and the weather is so warm. Yesterday the photographer in Wrightstown where we had our photos taken invited four of us to his home in Browns Mills for dinner. He has a lovely home on the lake—his wife served a real Italian dinner—wine and 6 courses. It was a lovely thing to do! We have a standing invitation to visit them at their home in the Bronx after the war for another sumptuous Italian dinner.

Love to all,
