We’ve got a new captain and he’s a lot better than the old one

Hello Bill

Are you still dancing at the “Y”? I figured you’d get started sometime. I was at a dance last night. There’s a place in Riverside where they have dances on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I like to go as much as I can to keep in practice. I wish I could wear my drapes though instead of this uniform.

I’ve been on K.P. today. The good thing about K.P. is you get plenty to eat and also the rest of the Battery went on a hike and are sleeping out tonight while I’m here in my warm hut.

We’ve got a new captain and he’s a lot better than the old one. I went in the office to get my pass yesterday and he asked me if I wanted to ride in with him. I guess you know it rates to be riding around with the captain. Most of the officers stick their nose up to an enlisted man.

I guess it’s too cold to go in swimming back there but I went in the other day. It’s pretty warm here even a lot warmer than out on the desert.

So long for this time, Tom

P.S. Get to work on that school work
