Well it won't be long now and I'll be in the land of the rising sun. All of our stuff is packed and down at the pier. It is just a matter of days till the time that we ship out.
I am in hopes of a better chance of getting home soon.
I received your letter yesterday and I couldn't find time to answer it till now. What with pulling M.P. duty and packing and shipping all of our junk it hasn't left to much time to ourselves. I am glad to hear that you like college so well. I only hope I can get back in the same stride I was I was in when I was selected by my friends and neighbors. The way I feel now it is going to be pretty hard. I tried going to one of these schools out here but I just couldn't do it. Maybe it was these GI instructors they have. They just don't make good teachers.
Well Ginny I am going to sign off for now and I hope to hear from you soon.
