The WW2 Letters of Private Melvin W. Johnson -READ VMAIL There isn't a whole lot to say, or rather that I can say, but thought you'd like to know that I'm allright and feeling fine - except that I'm downright homesick. I'm still in the same place as before. I'll get my new dental plate in a day or two - think it will look pretty good. Wrote Knowlton last night. Just a short V-mail with a few pertinent facts. Haven't received any mail from you lately but expect to any time now. Your last letters were most welcome. Keep me informed about the baby. I'll bet she's quite a girl by now. When this all all over we'll have a lot of living to catch up on. In many ways the Army seems unjust. For instance, as yet I've heard no more about that postition - but it's still possible. Keep the home fires burning.
Lots of love, Melvin
