Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner USNR
F.P.O. San Fran Cal.
Oct. 9, 1943
I changed the schedule a little this A.M. Did the running around before letter writing and still have plenty of time for the mail. I had a little matter of collecting some water samples so got them early and got back.
Your v-mail of Sept. 22 came yesterday. It was about the same date as your latest air mail which arrived several days ago. A Newton Co. E. came also Aug. 19. In it the teachers for the coming year were listed. I wonder
[page 2] about some of them especially one – all the kids will probably be “wiggley” by the time the year is over. Better not let the kids know I wrote that. I think you know which one I mean. For the life of me I can figure for sure which grade Mark is in. John I know because he started on the East side of the road last year – I believe Mark is in the 5th. Is that correct?
I’ve just been informed that there was two fried chicken came into camp and I’ve been promised a piece. Things like that don’t happen
[page 3] too frequently. Hope it’s good.
I also got a call to come to sick bay so I really didn’t have as much time to write as I thought I was going to have. Seems something pops up most of the time but that always makes things interesting and makes the day pass more rapidly.
Must get going –
