Dear Friends,

So sorry I have not been able to write as often as I would like. We have been kept on the go, and somehow or other, letter writing has become secondary. But, I just couldn’t pass up writing a letter to you when I received you letter along with the list of our boys in the services.

While in Africa, I met Nat Guy ’39 and Bill Whalley ’38. Both boys are doing fine and we did have a grand time talking about our days at Bryant. Yes, it is a grand old school. The trouble with most of us is that we don’t appreciate it one-half as much as we should. But, we soon realize once we are sent out of the States that we were very fortunate having the opportunity to attend Bryant.

Life out here has not been too hard. As you know, I am a member of a Medical outfit and my duties are those of Personnel Sergeant Major. The work is very interesting and enjoyable. We do eat the best of everything and do lead a very clean life.

I have seen quite a bit of the world and I can truthfully say that there is no place like good old USA. True, some of the scenes out here are worth writing home about but on the whole, they do not even begin to compare with our country.

Thanks again for writing and I do hope that I hear from you soon.
