Dear Folks,

Didn't go to the beach today. Went to a movie this afternoon at the Air Force compound. Those rockets this morning hit a C-130 not too far from where our planes are parked.

Picked up those slides today. Cost 90 cents. I'll send a few at a time. These are a couple of pictures of me operating the radios and one of me in the pilots seat, notice the captains bars on the hat. One taken out of the window in flight - you can see part of the wing tank at the bottom. And one inside our hooch at 37th Signal Battalion here at Da Nang. To see the pictures in the right perspective look through the side marked Vietnam. All except for the one of the hooch, look through the side marked Ectachrome on that one. So much for now. Going to check out the band at the Rice Paddy.
