Have you heard any more from Tuck I wrote to him but I don't know if he got it yet? I sure hope he did as I'd like to hear from him as its been a long time since I did I think it was in February since I last heard from him as far as anything new here there isn't anything I can tell and I haven't been out yet just a few villages here and there and like all the boys here wish we were all home. They treat me us swell over here there are a lot of nice girls but I don't care for them I have one back home to think of so I leave these other's alone. Gosh I won't be able to go to church there last two Sundays it's a good thing I went to communion on the last one that keeps me pretty good for a while. I'd sure like to know some of the boy's address like Philip Robinson, he's a great guy and Les Perras address as I'd write to them and if I happen to have a well I'd go and see them. It sure would be nice to see them all but I guess it would just be luck to happen to run into them over hear. Well I'm getting pretty short of paper so I'll have to quite for tonight. I'll try to write after that is as often as I can get this kind of paper as there other is so slow in getting there that's its hardly worth while but I'll do my very best to keep the letters coming so you know I'm okay and are not too worried.
