Dear Bill and May,
Another letter for today and I hope you've grown accustomed to being a civilian once again Bill!
Gosh! I really envy you, it's been so long since I've seen a restaurant or good Bar. Now you have all those things at reach. Oh! Well--I suppose someone has to do the infantry fighting in this Pacific. I truly hope it'll be over this year. I'm fed up with this primitive existence. I never know when my number is up and so far, I've had several narrow escapes from those maniacal Japs. So far so good. Thank dad for wanting to send me a trench knife. I could use it but it may take a long time to get to me. I haven't received any packages yet.
As to how I met Pearl, well all I can say is we both met and knew it had to be. I've never been sorry.
Love to Joanie and the folks
