The weather cleared a little this morning. They sun came out and it’s much warmer than it has been. Seems almost like springtime back home. We did our laundry this morning and eve. We cleaned up our tent and made some improvements this afternoon. It’s pretty nice now. Almost like home ‘cept it’ ain’t. Ha

We have an earphone in here that’s hooked up to a radio & we get good music and the news all through the day. It’s nice to be able to stay in bed and listen to the radio.

I am really homesick. Never have I wanted to do anything so bad as I wanna go home. Hope something breaks soon and we get relieved.

A new group was supposed to come to this field this afternoon but the weather is pretty bad & I don’t suppose they could make it through.
