I've been overseas with this damn war nearly two and a half years and I'm mighty sick of it. But I have a feeling it won't be too long now before it's over -- the European one, I mean...I frequently run into some of our old aviation acquaintances now scattered all over the world...We are all pretty tired out with the war. Good luck to you, Shorty..." Fine condition.
