I hope this finds you well. Just a short note to let you know that I am OK.
I can't tell you much of what is going on here. However, I am pretty scared. We went on a couple of patrols last week and Gunny saved our bacon. Things got a bit sticky.
By now you may know that Vinny Fragetti is not in a good way. He got separated from the platoon and when we found him he had lost his mind. He will be coming home soon. Mickey Quinoness is also struggling. He managed to get Vinny back to base before he started to loose it. We're lucky, Gunny Highway's seenit all before and is taking good care of us. I don't mean he's reading us a story and giving us a goodnight kiss (Lord I'm begining to sound like him).
Mario 'bought the farm' and the his Father Sergeant Major Choozo is pretty cut up about it. It does mean that Webster is now Acting Segreant Major,which ain't so good for us. We are getting the rough end of all the duties and we have a whole week of
quarentine duty starting this weekend. Swede Johanson and Jay Hicks are no longer with us. Please send my condolences to Old Mrs Johanson and I know you were close to Jay's sister Jane and Helga Johanson also. They died well doing their duty.
Love to all.
PS. Thankyou for the photograph of you and your sisters, I keep it close to my heart.
