Dear Hazel, I can really use one of those letters now that you promised me. They are really pouring the heat down here [and] one has to stand in line about [half hour] to get one of those cokes we used to have every afternoon around 3. I am getting to be a great little "clothes washer"--every day its scrub, scrub,-scrub. Expect to be here 4 months attending school. Keep an eye on all my friends [and] don't let them get in trouble--and you be a good girl, too. Lou Louie De Kennedy S a/c Quartermasters school co98 U. S. M. T.C Brks 136 Area 5 Gulfport, Miss.
