July 14, 1942
Ft. Ord, California
Yesterday was kept busy as platoon leader again and trying to help Frank Gerbode for a while at the warehouse. This P.M. we have another overnight bivouac. Thursday we have a long hike, all day.
We understand that two weeks ago we were scheduled to go to the Aleutians, but somebody’s mind got changed so I guess the desert is still the place for the autumn.
Loads of love,
