301 Service Squadron
Moses Lake A. A. B., Wash.
July 7, 1943
As you problbaly know by now, Lois, K W and Sue are coming home with Mom. I think that it is best, because Im moving about to much for Lois to follow me, and Ill probably move over soon anyhow.
Its getting hotter than a fiddlers bitch [what does that even mean?!] here in the desert. I never knew there was a desert in the North West untill I came to Moses Lake.
I am working dawn till dark. My outfit is busy on B-17s, the heavy bombers.
Right now Im at Ephrata, Wash. doing some work to help out the sub-depot here. They are behind in their work so we are helping them out.
Nothing more now so Ill close and write later. Tell Ruth & Herm hello Ill write to them later also
