Dole-37531283 2nd Port H.Q. T.C. A.P.O. 565 To/PM San Francisco, Cali. August 9, 1944 “New Gueina” Dear Folk’s: Here goes for another very short note to keep you at least informed that I an [sic] getting along OK and feeling just fine, hope this finds all of you the same, no mail afain [sic] today for me but it should be coming through again soon I hope I can’t figure out how they got it mixed up again, as I haven’t moved around for the past month, so I know the trouble isn’t on this and although it may be back in frisco [sic] at the apo headquarters but it should be straightened out soon. I am again back in the office, working as a dispatcher it is mu job to see that all the truck’s [sic] here are sent to the proper place and at the right time, it is still combat area but the jap’s [sic] here a pretty well under control in fact we haven’t had any trouble from them for quite some time, hope it stays that way, don’t know know [sic] any news to speak of but will try to finish this so you can at least read it, I haven’t done my typing as you know since I left school and I am really glad I took typing while I was in school I only wished that I would have taken some other courses that were available to me but as you know I always had too many other important things to do, but I hope to go to college someday, but don’t plan on it too much as I might change my mind before I got back maybee[sic] I will be too old to go to college when this is over but from what I hear around here the Germans will be about ready to quit before long, I am afraid of only one thing and that is that the people back home will [let] the german [sic] defeat go to their heads more of less and forget that we are still fighting our toughtest [sic] war over here in the pacific, at least I hope they will remember it this war ver [sic] here is going to last for quite some time yet and don’t let anybody fool you and tell you it will be over in a few month’s, I don’t know too much but I know what I have seen and they say experience is still the best teacher, so long for now .write soon. [V-MAIL] Love Kenney
