Dear Mom and Dad,
Things sure seem to run bad for some people, I left Delta Company and just two
hours later the new CO forgot to send in a location and got 10 people wounded by
friendly mortar rounds. Sure hated to hear about that, but there isn't
anything that I can do about it now. I just wonder if it would have
happened if I had been there. I don't think so, since that was one of my
pet peeves. I was always reminding them to send in present locations to
battalion when they were moving.
I don't guess I'll get in any time soon,
since I stay pretty busy out here now. I probably will stay in the TOC
most of the hours of the day now, until I go in to clear when I DEROS. I
sent home a money order for $600.00 and I would like to know if you got it yet.
I would also like to know what my bank account looks like now.
I am going to apply for a grant to take my last two years of school when I get
back to the states and everyone here so far seems to think I will be able to do
it. I will probably make a run up to Washington, D.C., when I get home and
check on it in person. I am going to fill out the paper work over here any
I have the 0200 to 0400 shift tonight and I am getting sleepy and just a little
tired of typing, so please excuse the mistakes. I typed, so I could get
this letter finished in a hurry.
Well it's Lunar New Year, called Tet and we haven't been overrun yet, so I guess
we sill make it after all.
bye for now, my typing is getting ridiculous,
