Sunday Morning

Dear Mom,

As far as I know I have nothing to do except wait around until church time, so I figure that I had better let you know all about it.

We arrived about 7:00PM Friday and have been busy ever since, taking shots, drilling, and one thing and another.

Six of us cadets were put in barracks with a bunch of regular army guys and I don't like this arrangement very well but there is nothing I can do about it.

We fall out in a couple of minutes for I don't know what, so must close.

My address is on outside; write soon.

Lots of love for both you and Louis.

Ben
