04.17.1945 Letter

Dear Willard and Grace:

I thought I’d get off a few lines to you to let you know I’m still kicking.

Lately we have been able to buy Coca Cola in the PX here just about every day. They sure taste good the last few days as it has been quite warm and skies are just about cloudless.

Been looking for the “Guide Book” every day now, but it hasn’t shown up. I’m not worried about it though. I could sure go for a good glass of cool beer right now and that gives me an idea. You know they used to put that up in tin cans. Do you suppose you could pick up a couple of cans and send them to me. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be alright since they are in tin cans.

The news on the western front or what was a western front looks better every day now. Have had a few prisoners working around her the last few days.

In your V-Mail you mentioned Jimmie McFall having been wounded. If he is wounded as badly as you say, I don’t think there’s much chance of my seeing him as he’ll probably be sent back to the States. A friend of mine had to be shipped back to have a specialist operate on his toe.

Guess I’ll sign off on this one.
