Approximately 1100 somewhere
on the bouncing Atlantic
Dear Mom, Dad, and all,
Yes, I know I am aboard a ship
without looking out a porthole because
I can feel myself going up and down and
around. I must admit it isn't any-
thing like I expected but even so we
haven't had what you would call really
Well, It won't be long now before
I will see Doug. I couldn't tell you
before and it might be cut out now
but here goes. Doug left before I came home
on furlough for overseas. He will join us
when we arrive. I imagine he has been
waiting for us rather impatiently. I am
certainly look forward to seeing him.
It's rather hard to describe the feeling
you have when the ship is bouncing.
At times it feels as if you are
walking on your knees and then the
next moment you aren't walking
on anything at all! Saves shoe
leather at times!
