Dear Uncle,

There isn't too much to say. My mother probably has relayed all I have written home.

It's still cold but the worse part of winter is over. It snowed today. My job is a simple one not needing any of the training that I had in Kansas. Of course, I may be asked some day to use my training.

This is the first time I've ever written to an uncle and I'm lost for things to say. Outside of the weather, nothing changes here.

It may sound funny for someone as young as I to say, but the year ahead of me seems like forever.

I remembered one thing that stood out when I was on the boat and as I traveled through Japan. You told me that I would see a different part of the world. Though the boat trip was a long one, it is something I'll always remember. It's quite an experience.

We have good food here, and they have added something new, we are finally getting enough to eat. In other camps the mess halls usually accommodated one thousand or more. In this battery they feed only 150.

Well Father, I have to get to my job. I would like very much a few words from you. My address is:

Pvt. E. L. Pierzchalski US55263754

Headquarters Battery 48 th F.A. Bn.

APO # % Postmaster

Love

Eddie
