Description:
To: Mom & Dad 1943_12_27 From: Kenney [3 page letter] Date: 12-27-1943 [soldier cartoon] 12-27-43 Dear Mom & Dad: Well I have a [sic] enough ambition to write so I thought I would drop you a few lines, to let you know how I am getting along, this camp is really a swell place, it has rained & snowed every day since I have been here, the officers here know that we are quaranteed to the barrack’s [sic] but they stop in every day [sic] and see how we are coming along, and the Non-Com’s spend most of their time here, so you can see there is no danger of chicken pox around here, the guy who had them was on the train and I have [over] never seen him, so don’t worry about the chicken pox catching up with me. Ernie & all the other fellows came down here, and they have all left, we heard that they went over there, but don’t say anything to anybody until you know for sure, you can’t tell when you will go from here but all you can do is wait and find out. Well Mom I had a good Christmas Dinner, turkey and everything that goes with it, they really feed us down here, you just walk through the line like a cafeteria and take what you want. I get all the milk I can drink also so you can see I should be getting fat & I am. [Tell me your secrets – I’ll guard them {printed saying}] 12-27-43 Page 2 [soldier cartoon] Well I can’t think of much more to write about so I guess I will close for now, I hope you all had a Merry Xmas. I tried to call you, I put in the call & waited for 4 hour’s [sic] and I couldn’t wait any longer because I had to come back, so I will try to call you when I can. Love Kenney
