Dear J. A.,
Well how is the old Boy. I was home last week & your mother gave me
your address. Boy I sure would like to see you. Don't look like I will
be a civilian much longer. I am going to take my physical next week for
J.A. how do you like the Marines. I hope you like it. Do you ever hear
from J. C. Barron. The old chicken. I guess he will do at times. Say Bud
when are you going to get a leave. if you will write & tell me I
will try & get one at the same time.
Say couldn't Colvin take it. or was he just home sick. I didn't get to
see him while I was up there. I didn't look for Walter Gee. I think you
know what I think about him.
Well J. A. old Boy I have got to go now. So take it easy old chum.
Please answer soon.
Your Best Friend
How does it feel
to be a doctor. or how does it feel to be a nurse. Stay in there pal.
