28 March 54
Dear Dick & Dad:
Things have slowed down enough for me to write a letter now. I have been managing to write Lois, and that is about all.
I had a good trip over, leaving 17 March and arriving on the 20th. I rode in a Lockheed Constellation, which is one of the more luxurious planes. We stopped 6 hours in Honolulu and one hour on Wake Island. I spent three days in Japan and arrived in Rosia[?] on 24 March.
Was assigned to the 18th Fighter Bomber Wing at Osass Kova[?]. They call this base K-55. I am communications — Electronics Staff Office for the wing. They have F-86s, however, I am flying C-47s and letting the young fellows have the jets.
I am just settled down now and ready to put in my time and today is Sunday, so Ill close to go to church.
