Tuna Fish (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Mar 17, 1943
Lieut Yegerlehner
A.P.O. 43
% P.M. San Fran

Dear Mother,

This will be a race with darkness because I was busy and didn’t get started until late and along with being engaged this P.M. we caught a Tuna Fish which weighs about 20 lbs and we are having it for evening chow. That is another reason why I’ll have to hurry. That must sound funny to you that we have time for a little fishing but never the less it’s true.

I found a few shells but they are not nearly as nice as those I’ve already sent – some of the same variety however.

[page 2] We were able to get a small radio and last night we heard on of Jack B. programs. Tonight we want to get Reno as they are having some services at an airport and since two of our fellows are from there we want to listen. It isn’t much of a radio but any is better than none.

Well I’ll do better next time – promise – Lots of Love

Daddy

    That’s a reference to the Jack Benny program, but this left me confused: “Tonight we want to get Reno as they are having some services at an airport and since two of our fellows are from there we want to listen.”
