Letter # 10

January 13, 1945

Dear Mom,

The only reason I'm writing this letter is that I know you want to hear from me as often as possible. I'm therefore writing this to keep you from worrying as much as I can.

The other day our forces started the invasion of Luzon which is the final step in the conquering of the Philippines. Our next step will probably be a blow against Japan proper, I hope. It will probably take a while to clean up the Philippines but I'm very hopeful that it won't take too long.

By the way, what is the story about Gladys? Did she get married already or when is she getting married? If she is already married please send me her new address and I'll write her. I haven't written her so far because I don't know what the status is.

That's about all for now so I'll say s'long.

My regards to all

Love Avy
