John Bullock letter

..kept us busy working. We started at 7 a.m… worked until we went on bunker guard or out to A.P. We finished leveling Jackson…..the civilians got so heavy that we couldn’t keep them out. They carried off everything they could get their hands on. You wouldn’t believe the size of the beams those little people were packing off. …feels good to be back to Ben Luc. The base and the fire base at Chamberlain are all the 6/31 has left. We will probably stay here for awhile and A.P. or airmoble then go to Chamberlain. Else we will get stuck in someone elses firebase. The great White Father (Col. Gearin) leaves in a few weeks so maybe we will luck out and get a better Bn commander. The next one can’t be any worse than Gearin. He’s a slave driver of the worst sort. More later. I’m going to see what its like to get a full night’s sleep.
