Dec. 20, 1944
Well – about time I wrote you a few lines. Really haven’t had anything new to tell you, everything is quiet, still 24 on & off, every other weekend.
No word from anyone recently – not even Bob O’Donnell. Did get several letters from N.Z.
Just think – you were down in N.Z. a year ago, perhaps in South Island over the Glazeeewr. Just about a year ago I was ComServPac and boarded the ship Xmas eve with “Want any help Criss” and MacClatchie. In a few weeks, I’ll be celebrating my first trip to Majestic & St. George.
I hear that all is quiet in N.Z. – all the Americans are practically out, a few stragglers as O.W.I., J.P.B., A.R.C.
[page 2] get in occasionally. Dammit it would be nice to get down there to do some inventorying.
Our weather is cold & snowy and it was down to 15° last nite. I am not used to it and my feet get cold.
Saw my Brother the other day (Lt. Cd. MC USNR) Ass’t Dist Med Officer, Charleston D.C., lucky son of a gun; he was on a 10 day leave. Won’t get holidays at home, due back in S.C. Thursday this week. The Kid Brother is up near Detroit in a ferrying command now.
My cruise box (Bokis) & sea bag arrived 2 weeks ago, all intact. Lucky! Did you get yours?
Am sorry I didn’t write sooner –
Regards to all the family –
Merry Xmas –
WRITE I hear from Frank Olrich occasionally & see John Willard also
