Sonny Boy writes that a Ukranian choir performed for them, and he enjoyed it very much. He describes his job as armorer for his company, and that he turned down a job with more prestige because he doesn't want the responsibility. He also tells his mother how German commodities like cameras and guns are expensive now, as opposed to when he was in combat and had dozens of them.
