Day In The Life Of A WWII Soldier
February 12, 1945
I passed up my chance to write yesterday but I am trying to make up for it tonight.
Mail has been pretty scarce here of late but I suppose I can't complain as I do not write very much myself. At times you would be surprised what a change in mood a letter can make...or would you?
I don't know why it is but here lately I have been thinking and wondering more and more about you and I and what we are going to do after this war is all washed up.
In magazines I manage to pick up here and there, I read all about the wonderful things they have planned for us after the war. How changed things will be. But do we want them changed? I am sort of tired of the pattern people have fashioned my life to. Why can't we have our own design? I have come to realize that the most wonderful part of life is in making your own decisions and living them without regrets.
Anyway, I've been wondering a lot about other things too. After sweating this one out I've been wondering if it's Occupation, China, or somewhere in the Pacific, or home.
I'd like to go home naturally, but there's a time element. I wonder if I've been here long enough. I know I've been in the Army long enough. Three years now. It doesn't seem that long does it?
Well I guess I'll have to go now. I've got a little job to do tonight so until next time,
Love as always,
Thanks Dad and my brothers who served in Vietnam and all who have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice. True Heroes all! God Bless America!
