I sweat more than I ever did on the desert

Dear Mom

We moved into the camp yesterday and we have really nice barracks. The only trouble is it’s awfully crowded here. To get a drink anywhere you’ve got to stand in a long line and everything like that. It’s hot as everything too. I sweat more than I ever did on the desert.

We go out on a field problem tomorrow and for the next few weeks we’ve got a lot of stuff like that to do. I don’t think I will get my furlough in July so it won’t bother your trip to Indianapolis.

You know, I don’t know whether Helen is home or still in Tennessee. I’ve only had one letter from her since I came back from my furlough and she didn’t say when she was coming in the letter, so I don’t know. If I didn’t think so much of Helen I’d quit her; she’s the hardest girl to get along with I ever saw.

Love to all,



I’m pretty busy
