Chu Tai Ho Chi Minh's birthday Vietnam War Captain's Letter May 19, 1968

 Happy Ho Chi Minh’s birthday! Chu Tai is poised and waiting fro some kind of an attack. I spent today holding 2 summary Court Martials on hill 10 and one on hill 63. Went up by chopper this morning and had my driver come up and get me to drive me back. I’m real tired tonight. Should clean house but imagine I’ll go to bed. Only 146 days left to go. Glad you got my slides OK. I’m almost done with another roll. Temperature was up to 105 today and is 89 right now. Feels cool. The heat has left me with no appetite. Weigh only 144 pounds now. You’ll have to fatten me up in October.
