Dear Folks,

Just a quick letter before I start packing. Sgt. Davis said we're going to Da Nang some time tomorrow. I hope it's for real this time.

Spent the day working on the radio banks that came back from Phu Loi. Trying to get them to work. Finally came up with one working combination of three banks. We're supposed to put them in triple zero (that's the tail number of the airplane by the way-000) whenever they get finished fixing it. Triple zero is in the hanger for some kind of maintenance right now.

I mailed some pictures to you that I got today. I got one letter you wrote on the 20th this afternoon and also a Power Squadron 'Horizon' that was mailed somewhere else and then forwarded here.

Have to hang up now. Got to get packed and get some sleep.
