Dear Folks,

Hope you got the tape I sent yesterday. Didn't get any mail today, but we're expecting some tomorrow. Duff and Currin came back from Nha Trang today. They only flew one mission all the time they were down there. The rest of the time it was just standby. They said Seacord came up to Nha Trang on Triple Zero, but he went back south again.

It was cloudy this morning so we didn't go to China Beach. We should have gone though. It got sunny and hot this afternoon.

I got up about 7 am this morning and got dressed. Then I laid back down on my bunk and didn't wake up till eleven.

It's been a pretty dull day. Went out to the planes with Murphy and Currin to help them figure out some electrical problems they had. Found some wires hooked up backwards. Hope they don't put things together like that too often.

This place is filled up again with transient people. It seems like as soon as they empty this place out they start filling it up again. Three more just walked in now.

My pen is running out of ink. Guess that about wraps it up for now.
