Postcard from Yakota Air Force Base, Japan, Postmarked Jan 17, 1971, written Jan 26, 1971
It's 3:30 on Tuesday here. Where you are at it's still Monday. Slept most of the way here. Temps here are about 50 degrees, at Alaska it was 12 degrees. We'll be here for about an hour and a half then leave for Bien Hoa, Vietnam. The plane ride is really great. You get a spectacular view of all the countryside.
