Dear Mother


It’s been quite a long time since I’ve written you but I just got back from Germany the other day and I’ve had very little time to write. We expected to be on our way home by now but the orders were changed. We were to have left about a week ago. We have turned in our trucks and all surplus equipment. I don’t know how much longer we’ll be held here but I don’t think it will be long. We will probably either go home or go up into Germany. I would rather like to go up the Rhine for a while. I have been in Germany though I have never seen the Rhine, We have been in this place about six months now, the longest I’ve been the place since I’ve been in the army. Germany is certainly a pretty country, or what part of it that I’ve seen is/ We were hauling sock for the engineers up between Grienes and Coffentz in the Moselle valley. The people treated us very decently though I guess its because they knew they had to. We were billeted in private houses, and each of us had a great big feather bed to sleep in. We were there about two weeks when we got orders that we were going home. So we cam back to Lux. and the next day went up to Bitburg Germany, where we turned our trucks in. I have been receiving beaucoup papers also received a number of letters laterly.


We are having beautiful weather here now, very much like the weather at this time of year in Calif. only without the fog. Well Ma, I can’t think of anything more to write so I will close now. By the time this letter reaches you I will probably be on my way home.
