Dear Ralph: 9 April 1944

[V-mail addressed to Ralph N., Richmond, California.  Return addressed to E.R.G., C.M. 3/C, 55th Battalion, Company D, Platoon 4, c/o FPO San Francisco, California. Envelope postmarked 14 April 1944 at 6 p.m.]

April 9 – 44.

Dear Ralph –

It’s Easter Sunday over here already but back there you guys are so far behind the times that it’s still Saturday afternoon.  I had planned on going out this week-end to try to take a few more pictures but the weather don’t look too good so I may stay in all day.  I guess I could stand it because lately I haven’t been getting too much sleep and rest.  Plenty of time for sleep though when we get on our way again.  Can’t really say the same about getting much rest if we go out on another job.  Who knows, we may even head for the good old Golden Gate before this year is over.  As long as I’m in this neck of the woods though I’d like to see some entirely new country.  May never have the chance again once it’s all over.  Well Ralph, take things easy, hope this finds you both well.

Write again
Bud.
