Dear Folks,

I've enclosed 4 slides. That's the last of 22. There are 3 other envelopes with 6 slides each. I actually got 22 pictures from a 20 exposure roll of film. Also got 2 letters today dated Sept. 3.

Had the morning off because I started working the night shift today. I was supposed to go back to work at 1 pm but I got put on detail cleaning m-16 magazines. Got done that about 4 pm and went over to Avionics for an hour, then came back here for supper. Went back to the shop about 6 pm and started working on 038. Got about half way through (it rained) so we got soaked. We came back to the shop and dried off and then waited for it to stop raining. When it finally stopped raining we unloaded the three radio banks that came back from Vung Tau today. They don't look like they've been fixed.

Somebody is watching television. Must be a cops and robbers show because every once in a while I hear a siren which sends a chill up my back.
