April 15, 1942

Ft. Lewis, Washington

Dear Folksies,

      Yesterday we learned marching, facing, etc. and also how to clean our rifles and our brass insignia. Today we took a short hike and then had a demonstration of field sanitation methods. This evening we had more drilling then cleaning equipment, packs, etc. Then more volleyball and dinner.

           Incidentally, army regulations seem to change daily — one day they tell us one thing and then the next the exact opposite order is given. Well, such is life.


                        Loads of love,




Watch for my next letter
