One of the boys got the TO today & the 16th of Dec I was made a corporal. We did not have to work tonite. I thought sure I would get some mail today. It’s funny all the friends & everybody one has & days pass & no mail. I did not have any work on the plane but have been fixing up the bases for the signs we are going to give the officers of this field for their help. Bed at 8:00.
