Just a line to let you know that I still remember Bryant, and its lovely atmosphere.

Being stationed near Springfield, Mass, only about 75 miles from Providence, and not being able to get there really hurts.

I am now assigned to a combat crew, in our final training. We finish our training about May 13, and will then go to a combat area. I am first radio operator on a B-24, and also a gunner.

We flew over Providence last week at about 7000 ft., and even from there I saw the Biltmore, Industrial Trust, and Bryant Hall.

It gave me quite a thrill to be able to point out the place I nearly graduated from to my pilot + crew.

Here is my new address:

Sgt. William bento- 11111293
807th Bomb Sqdn. 471st Bomb Gp.
Westover Field, Mass.

Best of luck in the future

I remain
Wm Bento
