About Letter 34
Bill is still down in the dumps. He pulls nighttime guard duty during a snowstorm. It appears that he’s “all washed up” as far as the ASTP program is concerned. He has not received mail he expects. In the evening he hears the Great Northern train heading south. This adds to his homesickness. On the positive side, Bill receives his back pay of $65.30. The War news seems good. At the P.X. he hears a radio broadcast that says "the Germans are already trying to make peace."
