"...Today makes a year since I was last in
that old country called the States. One year of fun, heartbreak and
thrills. A year older and a year in a sense kind of wasted. As far
as gaining I have in many ways. Found that while in school Geography
was a very boring subject. Now I've learned more about these countries
than I did in school. Know a heck of a lot more about coastlines anyhow.
Boy! who would of ever thought that while in school that they'd visit
some of the countries they were so bored with in school. Incidentally,
I have a kick coming two ways about Germany. Stood in after school
cause I didn't have my nightwork on it, and now because Germany keeps
me up some nights with their nightwork...(Air Raids)..."
