About Letter 286
Bill tells his folks to stop writing him as "By the time you get this letter I should be well on my way home." A large shipment of troops are leaving port on the 28th or 29th of the months and Bill hopefully says "if I'm lucky I will be with that shipment." He is making the rounds of people he knows to tell them goodbye. The first thing that those who are German say to him is " I wish I were going too, you lucky guy."
