Dear Folks,

It's been another one of those blah days. Cloudy and nothing to do. There is a show on the radio. It comes on this time every day "Chicken man, the wonderful white winged warrior."  It's the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long while.

I imagine you have received the letters I wrote just after I got back to Long Thanh asking for some of my civilian clothes. You got the one I wrote the day before. It's kind of hard getting use to the 8 day lapse in mail service.

Got two letters today, written on the 11th. Looking forward to the magazines. Already read most of the ones around here.
