Sept 2, 1945, Sunday

Dear Folks

Very nice weather here this Sunday morning. Cool breeze blowing thru the tent. Hear the radio going giving an acc. of what will take place. I guess Pres Truman will make this V.J. day. All over but getting home I guess. Don't know when that will be.
Say about every body is home around there but Billy & I, aren't they? I guess old Warren did cut a rusty. Don't blame him one bit tho. Just watch me when I get home. I'll manage to stay out later than Mac.
Wish old Mac could go back to school whether he plays foot ball or not. The foot ball won't help him any way. Guess a job on the farm is all he can get. I don't know what I will do but not the farm for me I guess. I may try to get me a flying job some place. May start a flying school. Mac & Frank could be my students. Maybe Dad would like to learn. Huh? I know Billy will.
So Jim Arch is back. Just in time for water melons. Guess he will get a discharge soon won't he? How about Warren B?
Say I guess this censorship will lift today. If so I'll write another letter. I'll sign off. Take it easy & don't work too hard.

Love Oscar
