Plymouth County

Harry Bonnema Jr.




Mrs. Harry Bonnema, Sr., has received a letter from her son, Harry Bonnema Jr., saying:

Another big move from one country to another. Have seen quite a bit of shooting but things are pretty quiet around here now. Just got some mail, but no letter from you: one from Dick and one from Rita H.

The weather here is hot and dry, just like Africa, but the people seem to be a little better off than those in Africa. Boy! And were the people glad to see the Americans every time we took a town and walked in. They clomb (climbed) all over the Jeeps every time they stopped.
