Dear Mom, Dad, and Snapper
Well I just got off guard. I was on a day shift today. I had a few letters. Some of them took awhile to get here. I had a letter from Jim today and he said he was in the army and was going to
Camp Chaffee, Ark.
I liked the pictures you sent. They were sure pretty.
Wed night I went over to see Arkie for the last time. I had 4 charcoal cooked steaks and a ½ fried chicken. They had a little party as he was leaving the next day. He said he was going to see you when he got home. I don’t guess I will be coming home before Dec the way things look now. I’ll probably be home before Xmas anyway.
I have been wondering what the wedding ring is for. I don’t think I will need it for anything. (note: I don’t know what he is talking about.) You better take your vacation on the 16 Aug as I doubt if our outfit is moving back. I am send a couple of pictures I had taken on the street by some Jap on my R&R. He sent them to me. The cost was about 500 yen. Well not much new so will close.
Lots of Love, Ted
