I guess you probably heard about my nephew Frankie Gaccetta, he left for the navy Saturday (next) Page II and most of the boys around here. have went for the examinations. and by what I heard, and saw in the paper, the married men with familys are going to be called, so that puts me in the race also. Oh well whats the difference. I just wish it ends off quick. You said its cold there, and there's snow, but over here its dry, and every day its windy as hell i'm getting tired of it.
