Description : November 7, 1952 My dearest, I am very near the danger zone because yesterday I was transferred to the front and at eleven o''clock I left for the front lines. Last night I slept in a kitchen which is near a brook between two large mountains. I hardly slept anything because the mattress was very hard, it was dirt. We awoke early and later ate breakfast. Then we have not been doing anything until 11 when we go to the heavens which is where the "bunker" or foxhole is at the top of one of those small mountains. I will remain there observing the enemy which is about 1500 yards of that place. I am pleased that all the Americans I have spoken to are good people who have told us that small arms are not used here much. Within 12 days the regiment will go to Reserve to rest for 20 days and then we will return to the front lines. Also, a sergeant told us that after three months we will get a 6-day pass for Japan. There I will do what I can to relieve the sadness and also we will bathe every day. After those 6 days, we will return to the front lines to prevent the enemy from entering our sector. Also, I am telling you that we must walk with caution because every piece of terrain is mined. Any mistaken path could cost us our lives or we could lose a part of our body. Yesterday two sergeants stepped on a mine and one of them is in grave condition and the other lightly wounded. I am writing now very quickly because the postman is leaving and has given us 5 minutes to write and also, because my hands are very cold. That is why the penmanship is so bad. I have dreamt several times with you and every time I do my love for you grows. Girl, sometimes I think that I should not love you so much since only thinking about you is torture for me. Sweetheart, love me, and continue to love me and write me words of comfort so I can fight harder and with fervor. I must return to you to fulfill my destiny and I need your letters as much as I need the help of the divine Virgin of Carmen. I am sorry but I must leave. I love you with all of my heart, Benigno Ramos
