Dear Ma and Pa,
I am well. Hope you are too.

Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer

the Marine Corps shore beats workin

fer ol man Minchell by near a mile.

Tell em to join up quick afore all

of the places are all filled up.

I was restless at first because

you got to stay in bed

till nearly 6 a.m.

but I am getting so

I like to sleep late.

Tell Walt and Elmer all you do

before breakfast is smooth

your cot, and shine some things.

No hogs to slop, feed to pitch,

mash to mix, wood to split,

fire to lay. Practically nothing.

Men got to shave but it aint so bad,

there's warm water. Breakfast is all

strong on trimmins like fruit juice,

cereal, eggs, bacon, etc.

but kind of weak on chops, potatoes,

ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie

and other regular food,

but tell Walt and Elmer you

can always sit by the two city boys

that live on coffee.

Their food plus yourn holds you

til noon when you get fed again.

It's no wonder these city boys

can't walk much.We go on

"route marches", which the

platoon sergeant says are long walks

to harden us.

If he thinks so, it's not my place

to tell him different.

A "route march" is about as far as

to our mailbox at home.

Then them ol city boys get sore feet

and we all ride back in trucks.

The country is nice but awful flat

The sergeant is like a school teacher.

He nags a lot.

The Captain is like the school board.

Majors and colonels just ride

around and frown. They don't bother you none.

This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep

getting medals for shooting.

I don't know why. The bulls-eye

is near as big as a chipmunk head

and don't move, and it ain't shooting

back at you like them Higgins boys

back there at home. All you got to do

is lie there all comfortable and hit it.

You don't even load your own cartridges.

They comes in boxes.

Then we have what they call

hand-to-hand combat training.

You get to rassel with

them thare city boys.

I have to be real careful though,

they break real easy.

It ain't like fighting with that

ole bull at home.

I'm about the best they got in here

cept for that Tug Jordan

from over in Silver Lake.

I only beat him once.

He joined up the same time as me,

but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds

and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.

Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer

to hurry and join before other fellers

get onto this setup 'n come

stampeding in.

Your lovin daughter,

Mary Claude....
