Educational Officer Navy V-12 Unit
University of Louisville
Dear Mr. Tresidder:
May I express my aprreciation for your help in securing Larry Hukill, AS, as the speaker for our Youth Dinner last Tuesday night. I am quite sure we could have looked far and long before finding a young mand who so nearly filled our need. He has a natural wit that should prove invaluable should he become a Naval Officer. He told his story and answered questions for the crowd for about an hour and a half and during much of that time he had everyone laughing with his quick-witted answers.
I spoke to him about you and, I am sure, if all of the fellows in the V-12 Unit feel as he does, you must be one of the most respected officers in the Navy.
Now I am especially interested in teh plans for the weekend of May 13th. I am wondering if the group which is to come has been selected, and if there are any singers included who could and would give us some special music on Sunday morning in our Church. That Sunday, May 14th, you know, is Mother's Day.
You will recall that the Greyhound Bus leaves 5th and Broadway at 5:30 P.M.; the round-trip faire is 65 [cents]. I will meet the bus at this end. I am hoping to hear from you soon as to how many boys are coming whether or not we can expect some special music on Sunday morning.
I told Larry Hukill about our parties and the plans you were making for some boys from the school to be our guests on the 13th, and he said he would like very much to come out some time. We would be happy to have him, and, even though you have the group of 10 or 12 boys already recruited, we hope that his duties will allow him to come too. If it is possible for him to come, will you please advise him so?
