Dear Folks,

It's been another dull day. Didn't get up till about noon. I woke up about 7 but I saw it was cloudy so I rolled over and went back to sleep. Been thinking about going to China Beach, but never got around to it. Maybe tomorrow. Ate lunch at the main compound, then I went to see the movie "The Great Bank Robbery."  After that to the Gunfighter Village PX and supper at the dining hall there. Since then I've watched a little TV, read the paper and had a couple hot dogs.

I finished a roll of film going through that town yesterday. I think I'll take it to the PX rather than mail it. I'll get it back a lot quicker and I know I'll be here at least 5 days so I won't worry about leaving it behind.

No mail plane today either.
