Young Daughter to Her Father
From Seguin, Texas; February 5, 1968

Anticipating her confirmation in the coming month, the life of a girl moved on while her father served overseas in Vietnam with the 366th Supply Squadron of the U.S. Air Force. With the curiosity and frankness of a young daughter, she questioned her father about his situation and life in the war zone. She wrote that the news reports worried her mother. Her own fears come through as well in the words she chose.
