I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled.
was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m.
but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you
do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs
to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay.
Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water.
strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc, but kind
of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other
regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city
boys that live on coffee. Their food, plus yours, holds you until noon
when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.
The sergeant is like
a school teacher. He nags a lot. The captain is like the school board.
Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you
go on "route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks
to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A
"route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city
guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country is nice
but awful flat.
next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for
shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk
head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys
at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You
don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.
Then we have
what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with
them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy.
It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best
they got in this except
for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake . I only beat him once. He
joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's
6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.
Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.
Your loving daughter,
