Dear Dick & Dad:
Just after writing you a letter, I received yours of the 15th. In fact Im not sure if I received yours before or after I wrote last. Anyhow this letter will bring you up to date.
I am now at Kadena Air Base, Okinawa for several weeks, after which I shall return to K-55 at Osan Korea.
The outfit moved here to Kadena, and I was transferred out just prior to their leaving. I will be as Headquarters 5th Air Force at K-55 when I return, about 12 November.
The cool weather had just started when I left K55. Here at Hadena it is windy, but not cold. About 60º-65º.
Sorry to hear about Bess. Hope that she is alright by now.
Give Doshi & Burch my regards, and dont work so hard.
Looks like Ill be home early in March. So Ill try to write a few more times before then. But remember that I was behind the door when the pens were passed out. — Bill
