Well I've finally been assigned to a tactical unit as you
can see from my return address and will be with this unit for the
duration of my stay overseas.
We arrived here yesterday afternoon and were greeted very cordially
by other members of the squadron. They seem to be a good bunch of boys
and I think I'll enjoy my stay with them. We had a very quiet New Year
celebration last night because most of the boys are flying this
I suppose they found out from past experience that drinking and
flying don't mix.
I don't know just how much I can tell you in my letters so for the
time being I'll stay off the reference to missions and locations.
When you forward any packages to me (this is the address you use)
send me a bottle of Parker 51 ink. That's the only kind I can use so make
sure you get the right ink. I'd prefer black ink if you can get
My mail will be very slow coming in for the next few weeks but I'll
write to you frequently. I don't think I've been doing too bad
That's about all I have to say for the present now so I'll say s'long.
My regards to all
