ARMY AIR BASE
WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA
30 December 1943
Hail to the Service Club! There is no better morale builder than a letter with news of old friends and associates not to mention a welcome box of candy, yes, there is a fine organization.
There isn't much of interest for we "military men" of the home front. Can you imagine, in the Army twenty-three months and thirteen of those spent in North Carolina. There is little chance that our letters can equal those of the men who have been in Italy or Africa.
In spite of the fact that my fate seems to be to fight the battle of Wilmington, North Carolina and am still in the U.S.A., I don't have much contact with my friends of the pleasant days at Bryant and enjoy your long newsy letters to the fullest extent.
I want to wish each and every man and woman of Bryant College and Bryant Service Club a Happy and Victorious New Year.
