General Delivery Port Chicago, Cal. October 31st 1945 Dear Sam, I got your letter today and oh, it was so good have a whole letter from you. I was disapionted and hurt for not getting to see you when you were only 30 miles away. I had been looking forward to meeting you, even when you got off the ship, for weeks. When I would think of your coming home, I couldn’t sleep, or eat or work. We had the red cross looking out for you and everything but I guess they kinda slipped up that time. I was kinda mad with mama for not wiring me but bless her heart she does the best she can.
