Cpl. Roy C. Jones Writes Letter Home
Dear Mr. Crossett:
Just a few lines to let you know that I am well and doing o.k. Due to censorship regulation I can’t tell you where I am or what I am doing.
When I was small and growing up, Tarzan pictures and books of any jungle life always interested me and hoped some day that I would be able to see such a place. Well I am there.
Since I have been gone there has been lots that I have seen and done. The other day something lit on the run way and before I discovered that it was a mosquito the boys had put 60 gal’s of gas on it. Lizards are 4 to 5 feet long (honest). Rats are big as house cats. By the time I get back I will be able to tell a fish story. By the way how are the fishermen doing this year?
Mr. Crossett I wish to thank you and the Masons for sending me the hometown paper. I read every word and enjoy them. I get lots of news out of it. That is interesting, especially the letters of soldiers. Again accept my thanks.
There isn’t much news that I can write so had better close.
