I saw Veronica Lake last night

Dear Mom,

I saw Veronica Lake last night. She was in the radio show “Blue Ribbon Town.” If you heard the program, I was there.

We had a crash over in March Field yesterday. It was a new type glider they were testing and something went wrong. The pilots jumped out and nobody got hurt.

I guess the kids are in school now. I sure would like to be going back instead of being out here. I hope it won’t be so long before the war is over and we’ll be coming home. This desert training is mighty hard on a fellow. We should get furloughs about November and December and that’s not so far off. All that rumor about us going east is not so but we may go back east when we finish this training period.

Love to all, Tom
