SCOTT FIELD, ILL.
October 18, 1942
Dear Miss Baldwin,
The vagaries of fortune are many strange and varied. Time certainly changes mans lot leading him onward through paths he never knew existed.
This I believe would be most applicable in my present situation.
I know I havent written to you in a very long time still I never forgot you and always meant to write to you.
For your information I have been a successful teacher and up until the Army drafted me I was leading a very happy life.
After I was drafted, I was assigned to the Air Force ground crew and sent to Miami Beach Fla. for a period of training. Then I was shifted to Scott Field.
Presently I am learning to be a radio operator mechanic and within a few short months I shall have been prepared to shoulder my burden in this titanic struggle.
Time is limited my correspondence great. I shall write more later on.
Please remember me to my friends at good old N.S.T.C. Best regards to all.
