Camp Wichita Falls, Texas
I have 13 days to wait
until I start on my Christmas leave. The news doesn't sound very good,
but I still have hopes of getting my leave. About 30,000 other guys on
the base are also hoping.
So, they say it doesn't get cold in Texas, huh? Tuesday we had a
big storm with high winds and snow. The temperature dropped down
to seven above, but that's cold down here because it's so damp it goes
right through everything you have on. The next morning quite a few
people were sitting and looking at broken blocks in their cars. I felt
lucky when I saw mine was still in one piece. It was frozen some, but
not enough to break it.
I finish school in March or April
so i may get out of Texas someday yet. I don't know where I will go from
here; it may be B-29, B-36 or jet school or even overseas. I am just
going to have t o wait and see.
In closing I want to say hello to
the people in Chamberlain and wish them a Merry Christmas and a Happy
Alden L. House
