Posted by on February 20, 2011, in the category Letters Home

Dear Mom, Val, everyone,

5 Aug. 1969 Tues

ONLY 11 DAYS to go.

Today I’m shippinng home all my baggage, just keeping what I’ll wear home and a few things to wear here.

I’m completely retired. The new medic is running the Aid Station. I’ll be spending my days at a swimming pool the 25th Inf. has here.

I’m really fat – about 220 lbs – So don’t be surprised

See ya all soon.
