Dear Service Club:
Received your friendly letter today and was real glad to hear that the school was continuing its good work. There certainly isn’t anything a man away from home likes more than a letter and a copy of the Bryant Alumni Bulletin. Many thanks for sending me a copy.
I have been commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the O, M C. and am now attending an Ordnance Automotive School in Omaha, Nebraska. This course covers Motor maintenances and operations of all vehicles used today by the Army. I expect to leave this school about the first of February to be sent to an outfit which is in the field.
This city is one of the coldest I have ever been in as the temperature is between 10° and 25° above zero all the time. Yesterday we had a good snow storm and now have about 8 inches of snow.
Thank you again for your letter and Bulletin.
Charles H. Tompkins
