Lieut. R. S. Yegerlehner USNR
F.P.O. San Fran. Calif.
July 27, 1943
There is plenty of conversation being passed and I’m not sure what might get into this between the lines. It was a three way conversation and now has grown to a four way. I’ve taken two or three beatings already. One being accused of belonging to the Hebrew race – and the other being as poor construction engineer for the rat trap enterprise. Both arguments were quite much in fun because we never kid anyone
[page 2] about being Hebrew to their face and on the other score the boys were just jealous of my success – you know how that is. These arguments take place very often and the recipient is whomever happens to be the unlucky person.
We are having a piece of tin placed over the screen door to aid in keeping out the rats. I’ve placed lots of emphasis on those creatures lately and rightly so because they can be heard in droves all over the place at night and it’s very disturbing.
Well, I’ll try to do a little better next time but that is what I always say so you have learned not to expect too much by now – I hope –
