Dear Folks,

Well, here I am again. One day delay between this letter and the last one. Arrived here at 5 pm. Came up on 038 with Currin and Deskin. Seacord and O'Briant got up here about 2:30 pm. We had trouble with 038. A couple things didn't check out on the pre-flight checks and we had to go back a couple times for repairs.

Just before we landed the airfield got rocketed. We were delayed a little while before we could land.

The mission is supposed to go 'hot'  tomorrow at 6 pm.

Saw a movie this evening at the main compound "The bird with the crystal plumage." A real killer thriller. Yellow alert tonight. Everything AOK
