Sentimental Sunday - 02/14/10
"From Wayne Ferguson
February 28, 1944
I've got a little time tonight so I thought I would drop you a few lines I see several of the boys in the service write to you.
There isn't a whole lot to write about because you can't write just anything you please. Still we have to write something to keep the mail rolling in. I think the most important thing over here besides chow call is mail call. I think about all the boys overseas will agree with me.
I have been getting pretty fair mail service on my letters but not so good on the Gazettes. I got the November 25 and December 2 issues day before yesterday. They were the first I had received since the first week of December. They are usually about that far behind over here on the newspapers. We have a long time that we don't get any at all and then a whole lot comes in at once. I don't think I've missed more than one issue since I've been over here.
Well, I've been over here for twenty-five months now. I just wonder how many boys from around Windsor have been over that long? I've done a little traveling in the last two years: Australia, New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, Fiji, and now this place. Just another island in the combat zone. A few air raids but none for more than two weeks now.
I guess that will be all for this time as it is about time to go to bed.
