Dear Bryant Service Club:

It certainly was nice to receive your package of sweets as all of my buddies appreciated it too.

Believe it or not there are five former Bryant students in my barracks- Charles Tompkins, John Rok, Russel Aliezi, Raymond Murphy, Peter Shuggott. The army is certain by taking its share from Bryant.

I worked for 12 weeks in the Camp Devens Personnel Office but as I didn’t have my basic training I was shipped down here to Camp Lee. I have hope of getting into some clerical job when my training is over but knowing the government I am not banking on it.

Wishing to thank you again for thinking of the boys in the Service.
