Well, I celebrated your birthday last night by getting
drunk at the opening of our club. We had quite a turnout and even had our
commanding general present for the event.
Do you remember the letter I sent you that was meant for the other Lt.
Berman? I found out that he's in our group but in another squadron. I
invited him to our club and we had quite a time. I introduced him to the
other officers in my squadron and the effect was quite amusing. Most of
them couldn't believe their ears and while they were slightly under the
weather, the expressions on their faces were really funny.
I flew my 33rd mission the other day and now have a total of 276:45
combat hours or 68.3 points. I'll probably fly again tomorrow which will
be my fourth mission for the month.
I've slipped way behind in my correspondence and now have a raft of
unanswered letter on hand. I'm going to try to catch up during this next
Now that our club is open I'll be able to go in and write some letters.
That's exactly what I'm doing now and it's nice and cool in here. The club
is about 30X120 and is made of bamboo. The floor is concrete and the dance
floor has plywood sheets over the concrete. The measurements of the dance
floor are 16X28 which is not bad considering. We also have a bandstand at
one end and a bar at the other. We have provisions for serving Coca-Cola
as a drink or a mixer for the liquor. We also have a phonograph which is
playing while I'm trying to write. There are tables and chairs scattered
all over the club. I'll try to take some pictures and give you a good idea
of what the club really looks like.
We're been having some poor weather lately but we're hoping for a break
pretty soon. It gets annoying when it rains so often.
That's about all I have to say for the present so I'll say goodbye.
My regards to all
