16th Station Hospital
Fort Dix N.J.
June 21, 1942
Here we are at Camp Dix—have been here for a whole week. It has been a long, long week.
Priscilla and I are still to-gether though—thank goodness—we went all through training to-gether at the hospital and I hope we are to-gether for the duration.
Last Saturday Mom, Jean and Ray’s girlfriend Kit came down to Devens—Priss and I showed them around and took them to the mess hall to eat—nurses mess hall that is. It surely must have been the hottest day of the year. I called home Friday night and Mom told me all about Harry Tuttles wedding at St. James Church. He married Hazel and the wedding was beautiful.
Our Chief Nurse just arrived yesterday and we are still waiting for our C.O. Uncle Norman came to see me from Brooklyn. He came by bus and train as he couldn’t get gas for his car. We went out to dinner and caught up on the family news.
Priscilla and I are going into Wrightstown which is exactly 2 steps from the nurses quarters—a street or two.
Be good now and write soon.
Your loving sister
How is everything at Camp Lee, Va, learning how to be a soldier isn’t fun is it? Can you imagine 3 of us in the service of our country. Poor Mom must be writing her fingers to the bone
Take care of yourself.
