Dear Folks,

Just made what I hope is my last trip to the APO. Mailed off a Vietnamese hat and that guitar thing. All in all I've only spent about $25 on postage and insurance. It's worth it to me to avoid hassling with the lifers in Long Binh for a day.

Istines got word today that the transfer he requested for Vung Tau has been approved. He leaves Saturday. He's going to the same unit he was with a couple years ago.

At ten o'clock I'm going to Nick's and pick up the slides I had developed. They should be in the mail this afternoon.

Almost there. 11 DTG
