Providence, R. I.

Dear Students—

I received your Christmas greetings last month and it’s a wonder I did. I had 4 new addresses from the one sent to me. You see, it isn’t your fault, but in cadet training, you rarely stay more than 9 weeks in one camp.

I’m now in Basic with about 3 more months ahead before graduation and those wings.

January 30th marked my first anniversary in the army.—It sure has been a long one.

Heard from Fred & Ada Carroll recently. It sure seems like a long time ago (1942) that Bob Connor and I dished out food behind the counter. Ask anyone who was at school then and they will vouch for it—never again will there be such service—for which the Carroll’s will heave a sigh of relief.

Bob is a S/Sgt. And gunner on a B17 over England. It sure would be grand seeing him again.

Have to rush off to get some night flying now. By [sic] best to Gardner Jacobs, (if he’s still there), the Carrolls, Rita Cassels, George Richards and all the rest.

Thanks again for remembering me.

P. S. The ration of girls to boys is surely an inducement to take some P. G. work!
