    That letter was typed back in the days of the TYPEWRITER. We had something very similar for those stationed in Korea (75-76) and getting ready to rotate back to CONUS. Good memories. Thanks.

    That letter is AWESOME!

    The wife and I just watched the movie DEAD PRESIDENTS last night. That letter fell right in line with it.

    The level of trouble I'm in in my household based on whether she calms down when I say the words:

    Sorry - I'm not in that much trouble

    Xin Loi - she's pretty mad, but she'll be over it after a meal

    Toi Loi - (roughly translates as "forgive my sins") - I've boogered up pretty bad and will be sleeping alone tonight, but she'll be fine in the morning

    If I make her mad enough that none of those work I get the silent treatment. I'm not sure why women think this punishes us. We're like dogs, if everything is quiet in the house we're content, but if you want to ruin our day start running the vacuum cleaner in the room we're in.
     
  9. Jerry, this brought back a lot of memories-especially the part about filling sand bags for a bunker. Really appreciate your sharing and that your dad made it back to the land of the big PX.

    I sent a couple of letters similar to that one myself, both with a 173d Airborne Brigade (Sep) letter head.
