Well, I've been here on Okinawa for a few days now and,
so far, I haven't found out anything new.
Now that the war is over there is no opportunity to finish my combat
flying. Everybody tells me that I'll be out of here before very long but
I'm still taking a pessimistic attitude. When they tell me to pack up then
I'll believe it and not before.
In the meantime there is nothing to do but sit and wait. It's really a
struggle to find something to do to keep from going mad. Yesterday I went
through some of my baggage and threw out a lot of items that were
absolutely unnecessary. I read a lot and am trying to get hold of some
educational books. I go swimming a lot and get a sun tan.
Some of the boys say that you can't leave Frisco without the correct
uniform. In order to avoid any delay you're going to ship me some of my
winter clothes. I thought you could send them to Aunt Etta in Los Angeles
and when I get to Frisco I could call her up and have her forward them to
me. What do you think of that idea? Don't do anything yet until you hear
from me. The clothes I would probably are my winter blouse, a pair of
pinks (light gray pants) my shortcoat and a hat. I sent home two hats and
the one I would want would be the Bancroft "Flighter". The other one is
made by Knox. That's all I would need to get home in. Any other clothes
could be purchased in Frisco.
That's about all I have to say for the present so I'll say s'long.
My regards to all
