I think I'm going to have a lot of trouble.
I am in the infantry for 17 weeks and after that I don't know where I am going.
Honest honey, I feel like crying every time I sit down to write you a letter... I am so unlucky.
Everything happens to me. I've never had a streak of luck in my life.
The only luck I had in my life was when I married you. I knew it wouldn't last because I was too happy. I knew they would not let me be happy.
