28 OCT 1968
Dear Mom and Dad,
I told you "B" Company really had some good luck; we moved from FSB-29 over here to FSB-30
and 10 days after we left 29 got mortar and 75mm rockets. They have had incoming for three days now. Guess they
will get a ground attack soon.
Things are going quietly over here, but we did find a "ChiCom" 75mm recoilless rifle round. It is packed in a real
neat canister of 1965 manufacture.
I got the bank statement; sure do appreciate it. I don't know what happened to the first one you sent. I will send
some money as soon as I can to the bank. I have my pay straightened out now. Are you still getting the check each
month and the bonds? I don't remember the bond and I guess I spent it.
I wish you would look around for two things for me. 1-a small Coleman gasoline stove, 2-a small Coleman gasoline
(mantle) lantern. I could sure use them while here in these fire bases.
I have to go for now,
