USMCR Captain 9th Engineer Battalion Vietnam War Letter 1968

This letter was written by a USMCR Captain, who was with Company A, 9th Engineer Battalion, in Vietnam, May 2, 1968. He wrote all of his correspondence on postcards. From the letter.....

Had kind of a discouraging day today. Very little progress on the jobs due to one thing or another. Hope tomorrow will be better. Monday we start on the 228’ bridge. Seems as though there is no end of work. Only 163 days to go. Sure will be good to get out of here. I’m trying to pick up bridge with the doc and some of the other officers who play but I guess I don’t have much of a talent for cards. Time for bed.

Love to all,
