The Vietnam Times

Letter Home
Dear, MomOctober 2nd 1967

It has been a drag the last couple of weeks. All we have been doing is sitting around waiting for something to happen. This place is about as far from having a vacation as you could get. It is hot and humid all the time here. Mosquitos and other insects try to eat you alive everyday. We are all living in fear here. Everyday you can tell that the Vietnamese are spying on us here at Khe Sanh. I heard that on December 15th the number of troops here will start to decrease to go back home and I hope that I am one of them. They were supposed to make a truce when Tet New Year came but that did not happen. Only more killing and fighting occurred from that. The VC hide so well in the jungle. You have to watch out for them or else they will sneak up on you and take you out.

Sincerely, Jonathon

Is this tomorrow?
