This is my thank you note for that swell present of two boxes of chocolates that I received from the Bryant Service Club a few days ago. I really do mean “thank you,” too, as it certainly is nice to be remembered when away from Providence. Devens isn’t so far away but we don’t get much time off and when I do get a Sunday I no sooner get home than it is time to return.
All in all, however the Army isn’t so bad and things look O.K. for the future. Sorry that a graduate of BRYANT is still a private after almost a year on duty but it wasn’t the fault of my teachers. I just had a little tough luck and spent four months in the hospital here. Have been back on the job for a couple of months, however, and should move along now. Expect to be shipped South soon. That’s all for now and thank you all for the candy. The boys and I went through it in no time.
