An Khe RVN

Letter Home
17 APR 1969


Dear Mom and Dad,

We just finished moving to An Khe, where we are going to start a pacification program.  We will search and clear the area, then help the people by medical and dental teams, schools, relocating small villages to form larger more easily defended areas.

I have been interviewed about the job of Company Commander of "Delta" Company.  Since I still have almost five months before I make Captain, this is really a great honor and compliment.  I don't know for sure if they will be able to find a Captain for the job, but even if they do, just being asked mean a lot.

I found an unusual toy that demonstrates one of Newton's laws of motion and it will be getting there soon. I don't have to file any tax until 90 days after I return to the world.

I'll write more later

Love,
Homer
