U.S. Naval Training Station
24 July 1943
Dear Mr. Dorsey:
Since I missed seeing you the last few days I was home I thought Id write and explain
that I really wasnt dodging you so as not to talk over the speaker at the Mill.- Although I
didn’t have anything to say I was really busy the last few days.
In fact I was hunting a radio and finally found it after going all over the three Falls Cities.
Then the one I had found needed some tubes so another search was on = Well, I finally
got it working and its really a big help here in Camp.
Im sending you our Station paper which is put out each week. And Mr. Dorsey - What do
you think of the S/c who gets $206.00 a month? - It tells about him and has his picture on
the second page.
Its nice and warm here so Im hoping to do a lot of swimming in the coming weeks. Last
Sunday we swam in the lake at Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The water was real clear and - just
a little cool.
This is my night to be on duty so we stay in the office until 9:00 o’clock. Since its
Saturday night we don’t have much to do so Im doing a little letter writing. There’s
nothing better than to get a letter and see the postmark of Speed - Its still the best town
I’ve ever seen.
About three times each week we take exercises and go over the Commando course. Its
work - but a lot of fun - You should see some of the real heavy men trying to get over the
8 ft. wall.
