We had a Korean USO show here at My Khe (at CAP School in Da Nang) today. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. They sang American rock songs and had at least two singers who knew their stuff.
The band was better than lots of bands that have been to Winfield. (my hometown)
The show only lasted an hour but everybody dug it.
To tell the truth a lively chess game is an attraction around here. Sleeping is the major passtime.
I drank three cans of warm beer and I think my resistance is down because I’m high. Not drunk, just feeling good.
The biggest enemy in Vietnam is boredom. Our compound hasn’t had a real attack in two year but I still have to stand guard from four to ten hours of guard each day. I’ll be glad to get through CAP school and out into the bush.
Hasn’t been any other excitement this week. The Villagers in My Khe are getting to know me by name and I like to talk to them when I’m on guard. The kids keep asking for cigarettes and money which hacks me off. I don’t give them any. I still don’t know when I’ll start CAP school, it should be sometime next week.
Guess I’ll quit.
P.S. got a letter from Carole Keller yesterday
