FSB Hip Shoot

Dear Mom and Dad,
We got the word today that we would move to An Khe Base Camp on the 11th. The last unit stayed on bunker
guard for a month, so maybe we might spend Christmas in An Khe. I got my assignment down today, Ft. Campbell
Kentucky. Basic Training Company Commander. I hope I'll be able to get another job when I get there, but
it really doesn't make any difference. How far is Ft. Campbell from home?
I got a slight punji stake wound yesterday, nothing serious, just under the skin of my left writs. Just
enough to require a bandage. Went right through the old scar I had there, but the Bn Surgeon said it would
heal just fine. Thought I'd let you know before you saw my purple heart in the paper, if I get it.
