A college student, I am again. Only this time at the University of Vermont. My training here will last for five (5) months. After which time I will be transferred to some pre-flight training field. It seems my training is something new with the air cadet training. The training, at the college, is what I call O.K. Itfs going to give us a good training plus an education. The finest thing about it all is it is all paid for by the U.S. Government.
Ifve never been to New England before. But Ifve studied about it enough in Mr Sloanfs classes. Itfs just like we said a land of hills streams and lakes. For the first time Ifve seen Lake Champlain. Our University is situated only a stones s throw away from it. In fact it can be seen from here because we are are on the highest point in the city of Burlington.
Give My Best Wishes to all of the faculty, and Dr. Schaffer.
