According to Stan's reply, his father must have given him the Honolulu address for his grandaunt Daisy Cooper in his 14 July 1942 letter, whom Stan calls "Peggie." I think he is confusing her with a cousin's wife mentioned in a previous letter.
Stan mentions baseball talk with his Pop.
Aunt Nutzie is Stan's mother's elder sister, Margarite PIÑA. Nutzie was the family member who kept everyone informed. Wilbert was his first cousin via his uncle Frederick Piña. Wilbert is also serving in the war.

In a previous letter from 3 August, Stan requested his father send him his trombone. The "singing horn" is waiting in San Francisco. How much longer does Stan have to wait?
You can tell here that Stan is feeling homesick and misses his family tremendously.
