Just like that old country church up at Bernard’s

Dear Mom

I haven’t gotten your box yet but it ought to get here today or tomorrow. I got an awfully nice box from Helen yesterday. It had a cake in it. The cold spell we are having left and it’s hot as everything today. I don’t mind the maneuvers at all as long as it stays warm, in fact it’s a lot better than living in a camp. We don’t have any reveille or training schedule, we just set our gun down and dig it in then lay around til we move again. Last night we sat down beside a church and they wouldn’t let us dig in so we had it easy. It was good to hear the service going on inside the church, just like that old country church up at Bernard’s. But then it doesn’t seem right to hear a church service going on and having an anti-aircraft gun setting out in the lot.

Love to all, Tom
