Writes Tribune from India
Cpl. Hobart Estill of Shelby, stationed in India, has the following to say in a letter to the Tribune this week:
I'm in India -- the land of Sacred cows and damn hot battles. Millions of insects and a h___ of a lot of jungles. Tell all the rest of the G.I.'s hello for me.
Hobart didn't say he disliked the country, but by reading between the lines you'll find there are several things that bother him a little.
