An invasion about to start

Dear Pop

I had a bunch of cards from you waiting for me when I got back. But I think I answered about everything when I was home.  We have been on a rest period since I’ve been back. We’re a good ways into Texas and I think we’ll be going to the Gulf to do our firing pretty soon. I don’t know where we’ll go from there.

I was reading something on the fourth army news bulletin about how they thought an invasion was about to start. I hope the war with Germany will soon be over ’cause I believe it will take a lot to beat the Japs. About the only news we get around here is a little paper the fourth army puts out and that is usually old news when we get it.

Guess I’ll quit for now as I got a lot of other writing to catch up on.

Love, Tom

P.S. I got the N&W magazine today.
