Description:
To: Folks 1945_12_7 From: Kenney [5 page letter] Date: 12-7-1945 Merry Xmas to You All Phillipines [sic] Kenney Leyete Dec. 7-45 [circled] Dear Folk’s: My last letters home were was very short, as I recall, and I didn’t have time to explain how I was on my way home, I left Cebu, about 5 minutes after I was first notified, I left on the 2nd/and arrived in Leyete to await transportation for the States what a wonderful thing to write about, when they first told me I told myself to stop dreaming, because one doesn’t last too long mentaly [sic] over here if he thinks about home too much, and anyway then as now [sic] I am so excited and nervous that I can’t eat, sleep or anything, I just sit around all smiles thinking of home and all =Page 2= of you wondering what you are doing, and what we will do when I get there, where I go to chow I wonder what mom [sic] has cooked for supper tonight and how likely I am to have such a wonderful mother and Dad- you can tell just how excited I am about all of this from reading this letter as it is all mixed up and hardly makes sense, but I am so happy and everything, I feel like I used too when we all went out to see what Santa Clause had brought us what a family not another like it in all the whole world there I go again. I am so nervous I can hardly sit still for one minute. =Page 3= I only wish I could be with all of you for Xmas but that would be asking for too much. Now I know you want to know when I will be home, We arrived in Leyete on the 4th/ and guess where I was transferred into, the Field Artillery (428th/Armond F.A.Bn) wish I could have been here when the War was on, so I could feel somewhat proud of myself, enough for that----- This outfit will go home as a unit and all personell [sic] will be discharged, as the rumor goes here, and there are plenty of them, there boat will become Leyete on the-Dec-28-45 which should put me in Frisco about the- Jan-20-46 so that s all for now, will write soon- Please don’t write as I won’t get my mail anyway. over [back of page 3] Please say hello to Bob and send this short note on to him for me. Get well Bob as we have a lot of things to do together and it won’t be too long from now- Love MR. Kenney
