Dear Gg, Flo – Jim ----
God, is it cold? I thought I’d freeze today – I did last night. Living in a tent, and sleeping on a cot, is not my idea of comfort. It isn’t even a good excuse for comfort. But like everything else – the infantry gets the crappy end of every deal.

My platoon is fairing exceptionally well, and they’re doing me proud. I’ve offered $5 to the highest shot in the platoon, and they’re all out for the prize money, which totals $35.

I’m awfully tired, and my back is stiff as a board, so please excuse me for signing with that good old handshake ----
BoB
