Long Thanh North
December 9, 1971

Dear Folks,

Finished mailing everything yesterday. Mailed the USAFI course and the tape recorder in the morning and the cassette player in the afternoon.

Sxxxxxx is leaving today. I don't think he's going straight home though. From what I understand he has to spend some time at the Drug abuse holding center at Long Binh. That's why he's leaving a couple days early. He must have been caught by that test we took the other evening. I kind of suspected it but there wasn't much I could do. I haven't seen him very much in the last six months.

I finished off a roll of film yesterday and took it too Nick's. I think before I leave I'll get about 10 rolls of film at the PX. I can get it a lot cheaper here than back home. 15 DTG.
