Dear Sis, Geo and Kids:
Just a note to let you know I am still OK. Things get a little rough now and then, but I think we have seen about as tough going as we can expect.
Now all I am doing is waiting for the damn gerries to throw in the sponge. When that time comes your little brother is going to do a hell of a lot of celebrating and I do mean celebrate. I haven’t spent a cent since I left England as I can well imagine I will be able to make up for lost time. Some one just mentioned that tomorrow was Sunday. Every day is the same in Normandy as far as I am concerned.
Say hello to the Nelings and tell Bess I received her letters and will write when possible.
