2 May 1944

Mother, Mae, Phil & family

A hasty note to let you know that I got another promotion yesterday. You may now address me as Sergeant Trickey. However when you write my title is Tec 4 Katherine W. Trickey. These Technician ratings are queer. A Tec 4 is called a Sergeant and gets the same pay but is lower in rank than a Sgt. ($78 per month minus bonds, insurance, & laundry)/ I am of course very pleased to get it. Marjorie got Tec 5 ( or Corporal) for which I am very pleased. She has been jealous of my rating and I am afraid is still jealous that I have gone ahead of her again.

I had a wonderful day Sunday just not doing anything particaullar. (sic) I got up for breakfast then went back to bed for another nap, read awhile, sewed awhile, then ate dinner. Played baseball for two hours in the afternoon, gorgeaous (sic) weather, sunny but a breeze, went for a long walk in the woods after supper before dark, then just talked with the girls and went to bed at 10.30 Peaceful and nice.

I finished my Projector course last night and have a license now to run the 16mm projectors. It has been interesting. I hope something else comes along for a good class.

Very hastily. Will write later again.


Mother, I am enclosing a clipping from the News. Sis had started to cut it so I finished it to send to you. Should I keep the papers & send them to you!!!
