Letter # 2

Somewhere in New Guinea Dec 15, 1944

Dear Mom,
Well, a couple of more days have passed and weíre now attending classes. We have been getting lectures on the conduct of the war in this area and some of these lectures have been very interesting.

While weíre here we will fly a few missions which wonít count towards our combat time. They are classified as training missions.

While in a combat theatre you have to complete a certain amount of missions or a certain amount of hours to be sent home. Weíre all anxious to start in so that we can come home as soon as possible. The wives of the pilot and navigator are expecting blessed events in the near future and both of the boys are anxious to go home.

So far I havenít received any mail in the past month so Iíd like you to keep writing until starts to come thru. As I told you before, this is not my permanent base so when I leave here Iíll probably run into some more mail difficulties.

Thatís about all I have to say for the present so Iíll say goodbye

Love Avy

P.S. Youíll probably receive a money order for $36.00 from a Lt. Norman Alfin. Please let me know when you receive it and what his address is and Iíll acknowledge it.
