OFFICE OF THE FINANCE OFFICER
FIFTY-FIRST TROOP CARRIER WING
Pope Field, Fort Bragg, N. C.

July 14, 1942

Hello . . . . . . . . . .

Well, my Uncle Sam has finally terminated my most enjoyable stay in Orlando, Florida, and now he has sent me here to get a taste of the rough ole army life again. I’m no longer attached to a permanent post, but instead I’m assigned to the Fifty-First Troop Carrier Wing, along with the rest of our finance personnel. I’ve been appointed to the position of Chief Clerk, which means that I am in charge of this office, which will place much responsibility upon my shoulders.

I’m sorry that I’m not able to write a much longer letter, but due to the circumstances, I just can’t. However you may be sure that I’ll keep in touch with the school, and when the opportunity presents itself, I’ll try to write a longer, more interesting letter.

I’d like to thank the Bryant Service Club for its efforts to keep its old gang in the service in a cheerful frame of mind. I’ve received my Bryant Alumni Bulletin regularly, and for that, I’m grateful. Kindly give my regards to all of the professors, as well as everyone else in Bryant College.

Henry Stadnicki

My new address is:

S/Sgt Henry Stadnicki
Finance Office
51st Troop Carrier Wing
Pope Field, Fort Bragg, N. C.
