Bryant Service Club:

The Christmas package arrived in excellent condition.

I was able to spend a white Christmas with friends and I can certainly understand how the Bryant men everywhere feel when they hear from the Alma Mater. It gives one a feeling of being tired more closely with the things we are fighting for.

Exams are close at hand and I have the good fortune to be taking some myself.

Good luck and thanks.
