U. S. NAVAL AVIATION
Sept 1, 1943
Dear Bryant Service Club:
I just received your very welcome letter with the addresses of my former college friends who are in the service. I was, however, very sorry and somewhat puzzled to hear that you had not received a letter form me as I did send one, but let me thank you again for your kind and generous gift.
I have been transferred to another base since I last heard form you. I am now stationed at Amherst Air station. I’m getting flying time in now. I have 14 hours solo and 26 dual. I am due to leave here for Chapel Hill in another month but before I do I may get a leave. If I do I shall thank you in person.
I received a yearbook from the college and I was only wishing that I had been able to graduate also.
A college degree is not only good after the war but it helps a great deal in the service.
I saw Lt. Shors picture in it. Perhaps, I shall get a change to see him sometime.
I am taking my final examinations in aerology [sic], navigation, communications, air craft engines and air craft recognition tomorrow and the next day.
We fly up here seven days a week and we have night classes every night except Sunday. During the day we have Physical training and military training so you can see I have very little time to myself.
I must end now and get back to the books. Thanks again for everything.
My address is:
Av. Cadet Dennis Malloy U.S.N.R.
U.S.N. Training Station
