I’m in the U.S. Army Air Corps for the duration of this war. Atlantic City is a beautiful city and sure has plenty of hotels. I have been writing letters for over 2 hours steady now and still have plenty to go. I’ll be here for 25 days for preliminary training and classification--job I’m to be trained for. I’m confined to the hotel for 7 days after which a pass may be granted to me. How is Bryant College? Army life is sure some change from civilian life. Write soon. Until then--
