Da Nang
February 18, 1971
9:30 am

Dear Folks,

We went off standby at 7:30 this morning the plane never got off the ground before the mission was cancelled. So now we're back on standby again. It's cloudy again. Wish this weather would make up it's mind.

Looks like it's going to be another one of those boring days. I think some day I'm going to try to find out if the Army has some sort of correspondence courses or something I could take while I'm over here. Might as well be doing something with all this spare time.

So much for now. They don't sell sunshine in pressurized cans, do they?
