"Dear Family, Well I have been a [?] for exactly eighteen months today and I guess I still being a [?]. The most recent [?] for promotions went up to and included 1 May. My date of rank is of 5 May so I missed it by only four days and I guess a miss is as good as a mile. Well anyway, at least I can look forward to a discharge which should come through at least by 1 December. [Crossed out line - As soon as I get some definate word on it.] I will surely let you know as soon as I get some definate word on it. It is rumored that I will be sent to the Great Lakes discharge and if I do I surely hope that I will get time to see Dick while I am there. I took Sunday evening dinner at the officers club here at the base and had a delicious broiled lobster dinner. Love Bob.
