Dear Mother & All,
I’m back in the 4th and we are leaving tomorrow for the States. I would have written sooner but I thought I would be home or in the states before now. I left the Navy Yard over a week ago and finally got back to the Div. They brought all of the old men back to go home with them.
My present address is Co. L3-24th 4 Mar. Div. but don’t write till you hear form me.
Love to all,
Joe
