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
