U.S. Naval Hospital
Chelsea, Mass.,
November 27, 1944

Dear Yeger,

Been meaning to write you for a long time, but I’ve been busier than hell. I took the N-P course at Philadelphia and really enjoyed it immensely. Red Dryer and Bob Walker were there while I was there and we had a swell time. The course was very interesting and I’m now an N-P man.

I was assigned to the above hospital and met Joe McGinn & Perry Snyder who are here too. Recently Stan Myers, who is on duty at Longson [?], came here as a patient to have a herniated nucleus pulposus removed – remember how we laughed at his back ache? He’s OK now. Bob Walker is on duty at Newport, R.I., only 1½ hours from here and I should be seeing him soon. From him I learned that Jerry Goodman was still overseas and crying like hell. I hope I’ve given you all the news.

It’s pretty nice duty here, although I work very hard – this N-P service is really kept stepping, but I’m enjoying it. We had a hot and uncomfortable summer at Philly – did I tell you I met Ed Lentz there? But it’s nice here. We have an apartment in a 2 family house out in the suburbs of Boston and it’s very comfortable. I have a car now and we get around quite a bit.

[page 2] By the way, I have hopes of having a Junior soon – at least we’re expecting his (or her) debut late in March. Everything is OK, so far.

Enough of me – how are you doing? How is the wife and how are the boys? I hope you are enjoying your duty – I know you like it better than being overseas – I know I do, even though I work much harder. I lost your address so I’m addressing this to your home address, and I’m hoping you get it finally.

Don’t be like me – please drop me a line soon and let me know all about yourself. By the way, when are we getting our promotions?

Best regards to you family. My wife sends her best
Sincerely,
Rosey

    I find myself wondering if any other letters from these Navy colleagues survive somewhere in attics or trunks. Or is this the only letter from Julius that is still extant? 😦

    “Stan Myers…came here as a patient to have a herniated nucleus pulposus removed – remember how we laughed at his back ache?” Poor Stan!

    “I hope you are enjoying your duty – I know you like it better than being overseas – I know I do,” 🙂
