Fort Sam Houston, TX, 30 November 1968

Dear Mama,

Did Aleta get her birthday letter?

The Army has provided me with nothing exciting. However, I am going to see Maj. Greip about 91L-20 transfer next week. The check is about all I could scrape up.

$30.00 Anne
$15.00 Watch
$20.00 Ticket home for Christmas
$25.00 to you
$90.00 Total
101.00 Pay
$11.00 left to spend

Here is a poem I wrote in Ft. Sam.

Much Love
