A Censor Approved V-Mail Letter
[based upon an actual letter sent home during Operation Torch in
WWII, to which the reviewing officer added "Amen!"]
Dear Mom & Dad,
Well, I finally have a little time to write to you. After leaving
where we were before we left for here, not knowing we were coming
here from there, we couldn't tell whether we had arrived here or
not. Nevertheless, we now are here, and not there. The weather
here is just as it always is at this season. The people here are
just like they look. The land, its plants and animals, are also
the same as always. The taste of the water and the smell of the
air is indescribable. We are doing, more or less, what we came
here to do. Being here and doing things is just like we expected,
except for the unexpected, and is nothing like being back there.
How are things back there? Write soon.
