Pine Camp N.Y.
May 13, 1943
Dear Ben + All;
I got your letter today was glad to here you got home ok. Gosh wasn’t it a nice day Sun. It was so nice and warm all the way back to camp.
Boy I was so darn tired, shortly after I hit my seat I slept about half way to Buffalo, we got to Buffalo at 1:00 P.M. When I woke up there was two Canadian girls sitting across the aisle, a fellow from Detroit was sitting with me we had a nice visit with the girls they were on a three week vacation they said they were never in the U.S.A. “Nice Looking Too”
It rained here like heck yesterday. But today it was a nice day.
That is too bad I did not fine Al home, only I was so sure he was to his Brothers or some place, But I see I was mistaken.
I guess we will be moving before too long, we have most of the big stuff packed. Still don’t no where we are going.
I got a long letter from Mrs. Miller she sent me some pictures of Bud. Also a letter from Sylvia she also sent me two pictures.
I really hated to come back. I had such a good time and so much more I wanted to do, But once you get in the Army they do your planning for you.
Sun night when I ate in Syracuse I had Mushroom soup and tenderloin tips with mushroom. “good too”
Its time for me to shave I have to shave every day.
