Received your letter of Aug. 8th two days ago and it's
the only letter I received for four days. I suppose my period of silence
is catching up to me.
We're still sitting around doing nothing. Most of the squadron is in
Okinawa but we're still here at Clark Field. We should move up by the end
of the week. By the way, I haven't stepped foot in an airplane since my
last mission on July 27th. Now that the war is over I don't care if I
never see a B-24 again.
Your last letters state that you received the $100.00 and $250.00
checks but you haven't mentioned the $150.00 check. Please let me know
whether you received it or not so I can find out what happened.
The heat has subsided and it's comfortably cool now. It rained for
about 36 consecutive hours and it's raining again now at 8:30 in the
morning. The cool weather is good for sleeping and in the last two nights
I've put away 20 hours of sleep. By the time I get home I'll be well
I'm still looking forward to the day when I get home. So far there has
been no indication as to what will happen to us. Bombardiers are virtually
useless under the occupational set up and I'm number two bombardier in the
squadron. Here's hoping for a quick discharge.
That's about all I have to say for the present so I'll say s'long.
My regards to all
