Dearest Evelyn:
Just a card to let you know that I have not forgot you honey.  Have got to take my expert airplane mechanic next week and I sure hope I pass OK.  Don’t know yet how I got into the air corp but will figure it out when I have more time.  What is new in King City or is just same old story?  This place where I am at in Texas is a Reception Training Center for all air Corp men and is quite a large Camp.  Must close and be sure and write soon.
Love Charles.

This is a postcard with a bomber pictured on the face.  If you have any information about either Charles Nelson or Evelyn Buckingham please contact me by E-Mail to this site.  Was Charles Nelson from King City?
