Sun., Aug. 27, ’44
Dear Dave: –
I ran out of ink and Marian has the ink with her, so I’m using this. (blue colored pencil) I hope you don’t mind. I’ve been transferred and am now south-east of you, I imagine, since you mentioned Neosho in your letter. I’m entrenched in A. S. F. T. C., Miss. Ord. Plant (MOP) (also mop) in Flora, Miss, about 20 miles north of Jackson. It is on U.S 49 about half way between Jackson and Yazoo City. Marian is on her way here (from Pomona, California) and maybe we can get together on a weekend or a three-day pass. Let me hear from you. I’m T/3, 31122058 in 3019 Co., 142nd O B A M Bu. ASFTC, MOP, etc. We’ll be waiting – Good-bye, now
Tomorrow I will begin posting a week of letters written in June of 1944. All five of Grandpa’s sons are in the Army serving in one capacity or another.
