Leaving soon. Keep these things for me. When you write use V-mail for most letters. No telling where we're going could even possibly be So. Pacific. But don't suppose that's the direction. The war shouldn't last too much longer. Don't worry. Be seeing you.
Lots of love,

P.S. May send bond if have time. Also you will receive more bonds from my pay by allottment. M.J.
