This letter, postmarked July 4, 1944, is written from James T. Carlisle to L. A. House in Houston, Mississippi. In a letter addressed "Dear folks" Carlisle informs his family of the many shots he's had to take in his time in the army and how monotonous his time has been. On a separate sheet Carlisle includes a list of potential countries he might be sent to should he be shipped overseas with a code to let them know where he is since he may not be able to tell them outright exactly where he is sent.
