I have been reading the November issue of the Bryant Alumni Bulletin, and have found it very interesting. In fact for the last ten years or so I have enjoyed the mail matter sent out from Bryant College and now I want you to know that it is appreciated.
My home address is 200 Ash St. New Bedford, Mass., but at present I am a Storekeeper, second class (2/c) in the Naval Reserve, and my present address is as above.
All I can say about my present situation is that at times we sure have some excitement. (Have to write on one side only in case of censoring).
Before entering the service, I was a clerk in the (New Bedford, Mass.) Post Office for a little over a year. (A civil service appointment after 5 yrs. On the list in 9th place)
Previous to that, I worked in the Boston Navy Yard, starting in 1939 as a typist, and when I resigned to take the above job in my home town, I was a senior fiscal accounting clerk (also a civil service job after being on the list for 3 yrs).
In closing—I hope to continue to receive the “B. A. B” in the future, to keep track of all my old friends.
