Apr 3 1945
I got a report from the Red Cross at Fitzsimmons General Hospital, Denver, Colorado saying that Vera was there for “chest observation – condition not considered serious.” I was sorry not to see her and think it is too bad she had to be sent so far from home.
I did get to the Easter sunrise Meeting and it was very very nice – a very large crowd, a fine chorus – Chaplain Jack gave a good address – the weather was perfect – warm – and a most glorious sunrise.
KP was not too tough either although we kept busy nearly all day. I did have 2 hrs off in the afternoon and played three sets of tennis with Drake. I only won 2 games but I played better tennis than I have all this year – She was playing better also so the results were the same as usual.
Last night I practiced baseball and then used Drake’s Typewriter to practice typing for about an hour.
This is going to be a busy week – Tonight is glee club – Tomorrow night I have my hair done at 5.40, - take an Officer Candidate Test at 7.00 – play a basketball game at 9.00, - Thurs. we expect to Broadcast (the glee club) and play baseball. –
The Officer Candidate thing doesn’t mean anything except that they have added a new requirement. It doesn’t mean there are any quotas to go.
I wish I could see & hear Bobby – I [think he] sounds so cute in all your letters.
Mother, I like your letters as you write them. They seem so real. The longer the better.
Sis, I wrote Bob a V–Mail this week and I’ll try to do better from now on.
Love to all
