89 days to go
Long Thanh North

Dear Folks,

Didn't get any letters yesterday but I did get that tape. The reason it took an extra day or two was that it had been mis-sent somewhere else.

I had the whole day off yesterday. Didn't have to go to work till 6:30 pm. We made up for it though. We ended up working till 10 pm last night.

 Ate midnight chow for the first time in a long while. All it is is breakfast. One thing I like about it is the hot buttered toast that they serve. They don't have that at breakfast.

First Signal Brigade Aviation Detachment now has hot water in the shower! When Second Signal left we got a hot water heater that they left behind. So we don't have to belong to the Polar Bear Club any more to take a shower.
