USN Receiving H.
San Fran. (12)
This will have to be short – since I have the duty and am writing between phone calls, etc.
There was a paper out today for us to sign with the number of points we have at present, etc., so maybe something will turn up.
I’m to go on a draft with patients to Corona California on Monday – it is a 12 to 14 hour trip down the state – hope I can get due east one of these days –
Well, will write more tomorrow.
P.S. I’m off tomorrow PM so maybe can write more

Carona Draft? I thought he was going to talk about beer! LOL 🙂
“with the number of points we have at present” Do you know what that was about?
“…it is a 12 to 14 hour trip down the state – hope I can get due east one of these days” 🙂
Soldiers accumulated points for their service. Length of time served, type of duty, etc. when you reached the magic number you were eligible for discharge (basically). If you ever watched MASH, they were always talking about how many points they had.
