Dear Mom

We had some more snow here last night and the campus looks beautiful. I’m feeling fine and just wrote out an application for a pass again, but I don’t think I can get it. We had a mix-up here last Sunday and out of 380 men and 342 were gigged [got demerits], me being one of the many. That’s five gigs right there and last Friday I received 2 gigs which makes 7 and that’s the limit. Now yesterday, I got 2 more which means I’ll be walking again this week.

I just can’t help it. The last 2 weeks I received more gigs than I have in all the time before while I was here. Well, if I can come, I’ll call you Saturday before I leave if I do!

Tell Cookie that! And if I call you let her know. It’s a hard thing, this going home, and I haven’t much to say about it.

Well, I have some studying to do now so take care of yourself and send my love to all.

Your Son,
