Your letter came yesterday, and I should be one of the
happiest and most willing persons on this earth to write
you some good news, but there has been no news at all
for quite some time.
There should have been a letter from the adjutant general’s
office this week whether the situation had changed or
not, as it has now been three months since we received
the wires which reported the boys missing.
I read in the newspaper the other day that a thorough
search is being made thruout the area where any servicemen
may be found. This search will take approximately thirty
days. Maybe at the end of that time there will be some
official news from Washington.
Needless to say, I was very fond of Charlie, the three
of us had many a merry time especially when he was here
Christmas. My folks were delighted, for Charlie’s
being here was a compensation for my younger brother
who was overseas.
I only wish there was something I could say or do that
I shall pass on to you any information received.
God willing the boys will be home again.
