Sept. 10, 1942

I Love You,

Hello Dearest,

Sorry I couldn’t write yesterday but we left on a surprise motor march of a 100 miles and then bivouaced all night—I mean camped out all night. During the night we drove across country for 3 hrs. with out any lights—it don’t sound like much when I say we drove “blackout”—but Honey that’s a real job!—Can’t see—don’t know what you are going to run into the in the next few feet. It gets pretty tiresome but it’s fun.

Say—Twila sure does pick on some funny guys don’t she?—Ha.

I’m so darn tired,—guess that is why I can’t think of much to say.

I know one thing I can say—I know the sweetest little girl that lives in Ohio, and I mean that


lives that lives anywhere—any time.

Two B-24’s—big 4 motored bombers flew over today—and were they big—Wow—and high too.

I kind of figured when I told you to thank your Grandmother for the cigars that maybe you were the one that thought of it.—Ha.

Well Honey—this is short but better then nothing I hope—I don’t like to write (you) a short letter to you—but my brain is pretty misty tonight


Goodnight Sweetheart

I love you

I give you all of it
