Bob Jones wrote this letter to his parents while stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany shortly after the end of World War II. Jones expresses concerns about the slow mail affecting his ongoing correspondence courses. He explains that he had been able to send in his work for a German course he was taking and that he had received confirmation that Oberlin College and the University of Michigan would give him credit for his ASTP (Army Specialized Training Program) credits. Jones also includes his requests for Christmas gifts and any other packages from his parents.

Jones was a professor of physics at Linfield College from 1955-1987.
