We are on ‘C’ rations

Hello there Zoot,

I am looking out for that box you all fixed. If I get it while I’m out on our next field problem it will come in good because we are on ‘C’ rations. I got a box of 24 candy bars to take and they will keep me from getting hungry. These problems are really tough. We had to dig in our gun three times last week and we don’t get much sleep.

We will be leaving for Haan before long and I sure will be glad to get back. The night are cold now and sleeping in pup tents is very uncomfortable.  I’ll write again when we get back from the next field problem.

So long for now, Pvt. “Zoot”
