Abstract V-Mail Letter from Corporal Kenneth Juedes, 1st Auxillery Surgical Group, to Reverend John E. Elbert.

Dear Rev. & Members
I haven't written for sometime again but I'm busy now. I work in a Station Hosp. 12 hours a day & you don't get much time. I work in the operating rooms. They call us the butcher boys. I don't care much for that kind of work but I have to do it. I'm going to try to go & see Kelly one of these days. I suppose we will have lots of fun cause we haven't seen each other in over a year. I sure would be glad to see him. We been having a few air raids around here lately but they weren't close enough to do us any harm. Guess that's all I know for this time. Will write again
Sincerely yours
