Dear Folks,

I am well, happy, and safe and I hope you all are the same.

Yesterday I received a whole batch of mail that was following me around. One of them was from Vince, from Brooklyn. I answered it today.

Babe’s Combat Infantryman’s Badge

The “Stars and Stripes” I sent you were only to let you know what kind of paper we had. There was nothing in particular I wanted you to see in any of them.

The badge is the Combat Infantryman’s Badge.

I received Bib’s letter from Albany and also his Hi-Y picture.

I am back with my outfit now, so I will be able to send you the things I said I’d send. Naturally, I couldn’t send them from the hospital because I didn’t have them.

You can send me more pictures of all anytime you get around to it.

Also send me a package and if you don’t think they will perish, send me some of those nickle pies. Also some razor blades; Gillette.

I received the address of Monnemaker and I shall probably see him within the next week.

That’s all for now.

Love & Kisses,
