world.

Are my letters too full of gripes? I hope not. I'm just describing this base as I experience it. True, I'm not overjoyed at my stay here but I'm not going around with a doleful face. In a way, I appreciate this opportunity to see another naval base as well as the trip across the country. And if I get a chance to see the world further, I won't lose too much - except for the opportunity to be with you & Rema & settle down again. Probably my next trip home will be the final one; after all, after this separation, we'll be together for a long, long time.

Meanwhile, here's a kiss in absentia for you & Rema. Were you excited about the surrender of Japan? Everything happened when I left - the atomic bomb, the Russians' entry into the war, & now the war's end.

Regards to all.

Love

Irv

P.S. Ask Baron to speak to Joe Dusoll [?] about pack of 616 films he had for me. I'd like you to have them. Did the films come back from the photo service?
