Dear Mom and Dad,

I just finished a night combat assault. When I jumped from the chopper I sank up to my chest in rice paddy mud. Some fun.

I got the camera battery. I sure do keep busy as a line Company Commander. You just wouldn't believe it. 0130 at night to 0530 in the morning for sleep, if I'm lucky, but I don't even notice it.

Say if you haven't sent that package yet, see if you can find some instant soup powder, the kind you just add to hot water.

It has turned rainy and cold with high winds here and anything hot sure is good.

Gotta run, they just blew the pipeline again.
