April 23, 1942
Ft. Lewis, Washington
Yesterday we practiced “dry firing” in the morning then walked two miles to the firing range, and each shot 15 shots with rifles from the prone position. Most were better than we expected to be. We fired only from short distances but used very small targets. I had one bulls-eye and all hit on the target.
Latest dope in official orders is the medical units will not be armed. Maybe they’ll change again — who knows.
Lots of love,
Watch for my next letter
