Dear Folks,

I can hear Chickenman echoing in the distance. It's that time of day again.

Accomplished a little today for a change. Got two banks working good. Only three more to go. At the present rate of  4 days to the bank that could mean another 12 days. ugh!

At least the time goes quick. When you do the same routine day after day you lose track of time.

I talked with Capt. Bevans and Capt. Kinzel on the phone today. Of course, neither one knows about the other. I asked them both about getting my mail sent up to me. I'll probably get my mail in two pieces. Half from Bevans, and half from Kinzel. Maybe even three pieces if Davis sticks his two cents in.

Still having a thundershower or two every day. I understand that the weather has been the same at Long Thanh.

I have a couple different civilians working on the radios. They don't seem to know any more than the other guys but at least they work most of the time.

Guess that's it.
