I Love You,

Nov. 19, 1942.

Dearest Ruth,

How is my loved one tonight? Has she regained perfect health yet? If so I am very glad—If she hasn’t she had better start to begin to commence to feel a little better.

I haven’t heard any information pertaining to us and our large and numerous problems. Am still hoping tho.

We were processed today. That is—they just made out our insurance. I wish we would get married soon so I could have it made out to you. You aren’t allowed to make it out to anyone unless they are related to you. It is free. $10,000 worth. It wouldn’t be bad in one lump would it? Amen.

I don’t know when we will take our physical—I don’t imagine it will be very long tho. I hope not—I would like to get it over with. Then I would know (the) whether I was going to get started or not. You know—almost 70% of the fellows who try out for

this fail. And as I am nothing more then average you can see what I expect.

I am going to write a short letter to Mom tonight if I get time, if I don’t she’ll be having a fit wondering what I’m doing.

As near as I can find out—(if) The ones that pass the physical will not even start to “pre-flight” untill the middle of Dec. or after. That is the place that is so tough—it last for 9 wks. That is why I tho’t it might be rather hard for me to get out—I will have a lot of hard work—very hard exercise and ver one hell of a lot of studying to do. Oh me.

Well Honey—This is short—but if I’m lucky I’ll be able to write you more in the morning—I hope so.—I could be rather sentimental tonight but two nights in a row would be too much wouldn’t it?—Besides I’d start getting more homesick for my Sweetheart—So—Until Tomorrow

Goodnight Sweetheart

I Love You
