Dear Folks,

I'll start this letter tonight since I've got time. We've got to rig 013 as soon as maintenance finishes working on it. They are working on the landing gear. We're supposed to rig it as a standby ship for radio relay.

Another hot sunny day today. A few clouds but they are high.

I didn't get any mail today but I was surprised to get the slides from the army. There are some pretty good shots. A lot better than if I would have somebody do it with my camera. I guess he took so many he had some left over.

Remember Harp who got the 147 day drop? Well, he doesn't have it any more. He was short for one day then he got another set of orders that superseded the drop orders. So now he's back up to 6 months again. That's definitely a real bummer!

79 or less DTG
