Today I received my copy of the Bryant Alumni Bulletin, and to be truthful, it was almost as good as a letter from home.
Before my induction into the Army on October 3rd, 1942, I never realized how much good mail can do for a person away from home, but I’ve learned through experience.
Since coming to Camp Pickett, I’ve attended Clerk’s School…finishing the course last Friday. I expect to be here for 3 or 4 more weeks before being assigned to a permanent unit…where, I do not know.
Army work and life are quite different from my civilian status as a Social Worker for the City of New Bedford, but fortunately my civilian position awaits my return after the war is over.
I correspond frequently with Sgt. Joseph A. Lenorseur (?) who is stationed at Fort Bragg, No. Carolina, and the last I heard from Pvt. Milton Rosen, ’37, he was in California.
I shall again look forward to the next issue of the Bryant Bulletin.
Pvt. Leo S. Harrington, ‘37
