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.

Love,
Homer
