Long Thanh North
December 16, 1971
11 am

Dear Folks,

Just got back from Long Binh. Took that urinalysis test at 24th Evac Hospital and hitched a ride back. Got a ride on a Thai truck. He said he was going to Long Thanh but he drove right past the turn off. I gave a papason 100 pi to give me a ride up to the gate in his little Honda truck.

That's one headache out of the way. Tomorrow I have to go to the dispensary and get my shots and either Saturday or Monday I should start clearing. I should leave Long Thanh by next Wednesday at the latest. Maybe even Tuesday if I start clearing on Saturday. As long as there is no hold up at 90th Replacement I should be home by Christmas.
