Dear New Father,

Congratulations! I'm sure glad to hear there is [sic] still some people around who can make boys.

With a(nd) name like that he can't lose. DMI? Looks like it should stand for something.

Aug '68 looks like a good date to graduate. We'll both have something to celebrate. You don't know how much I wish I had stayed in school and you had enlisted. I mean, if it's got to happen ,why not to a friend?
