I want you and Dad to sign this application, and send it back as soon as possible. I am going to try the cadet test again, I don't know what for.
Things haven't been so hot here lately and most all we do is go in to the nearby woods and sit on the ground and listen to lectures, that isn't so bad.
You asked about the boys down here from home. There is five of us, John Irwin, ___ _______(permission denied to use one name), Joe Harcarufka and Jack Strickland. There is also a lot of the boys here that are from our own reception center.
I probably won't get anything out of this test but it is worth a try.
P.S. I wrote Wesly, Buck, Allen, Shirley and Louise, doing pretty good huh?
