August 2, 1969.  Camp Evans, Vietnam.


Here is the link to the first half of his message home. (35:29)


I think the recording sounds slow at the beginning because the portable recorder is running out of batteries.  It gets better in a bit.

Let me know if you have any difficulty listening to it. It is a direct link to the 8MB file because to embed it directly I would have to pay a bit of money to WordPress.

Clicking the link should play it on most computers; if you’re on a mobile device it may download the file, which you should then be able to play on whatever app you play music with.

Android users should find the file in their “Download” app.  Apple users… I have no idea.  Good luck.  🙂
