SERVICE MEN'S CORNER
Mrs. P. C. Christensen, route 4, Huron, received the following V-letter written Oct. 32, from her son, Corp. C. A. Christensen, who is believed to be stationed in New Guinea.
Dear Mom and Dad: It was another hot day today. It still stays cool at night but as soon as the sun comes up it's a different story. When it rains it cools off a little. Lately it rains mostly at night, especially when there is a show in the area. We take our panchos with us when we go now so we see the show rain or shine.
I received your letter of Oct. 2 today and also one from Raymond. I also received three Huronite papers. I hope you'll be able to get some film. It doesn't make much difference which size for I'll find a camera to use them in some place in the regiment. I want you to use the next money I send you to get Christmas presents all around. It will probably be all I'll send home for awhile as I'm taking a furlough in a couple of months and I don't think I'll have much left when I get back. I wrote a letter to George Schroeder, so I may find out where he is. If I do I'll try to look him up.
Everybody is building sail boats during their spare time so it's going to look like a shipyard around here. They don't all stay right side up but some of them navigate pretty well. We have a lot of fun with them anyhow. I'll have to close for now. I'll be looking for a letter from you soon.
