Hi Darling;

Well here it is Wednesday morning and I have just finished writing out my pass for a “48” hour leave so, I expect that I will be home on Friday at 5:17. It certainly is nice being able to get home every second weekend. So figure out what you would like to do Friday night darling.
Well I am really taking life very easy down here dear. I went to the station show last night and saw Henry Aldrich and I really enjoyed it. Tonight is the Quiz night where they ask questions. Last week I won 100 cigarettes on the program and sold them for $1.00.
We had a crash here last Monday and the poor fellow was killed. I saw what was left of the plane and it was certainly an awful mess. It makes me realize that the war is still going on and anything could happen to any of us at any time.
I received the papers last night dear, so thank you for arranging them to come down here, so they will give me something to read for the next day or two. Boy the hours around here are a cinch, from about 8:30AM in the morning until 11:30 and then from 1:30 to 3, when we have 2 hours of PT and sports. So I guess I will be a mass of muscle when I come home. I really feel like a million dollars since I have been getting all this exercise. I am just afraid that you will not even recognize me when I get home, so I better wear my ID tag (HAHA).
Darling, I was wondering if you would like to have a little party at the house on Saturday? I think it would be lovely to invite all our friends over and have a dance or two. You could even invite Marg and see if she can escape that house for a while, I think that would bring a smile to her face. I will leave all the planning to you dear.
I see by the papers where they are going to discharge 6000 in the Air Force by Christmas. I figure that I won’t be out until March considering the work that I do in the office. But that is only 4 months from now so I do not mind waiting. As long as I have a lovely sweet wife and baby like you and Donna. I don’t know what we will do about getting a place. I know that is practically impossible. But I don’t imagine your Mother minding if I stay there for a week or two until we do find some place. But we will talk that all over when I come home.
So dear, until Friday night I remain,
Your loving husband,
