Dear Mother,

Unfortunately I have the duty again today – There is an alternate watch and I happened to be up on that about first and the one who was to have it today got sick so I’m taking his duty today – That possibly makes my last in the navy I hope. I may catch one more but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

I don’t know for sure whether or not I’ll try another draft before I come home or not – if I could get one in the next few days I’d take it but I don’t want to get back after Nov. 1.

I’m try to write this while somebodies’ wife is sick who we don’t have any right to see – someone else has run off with the laundry keys and someone else wants to bring his wife aboard, but I guess that all goes in a day’s work.

Sorry I don’t have time to write more but lots of Love for now,
Daddy

One thought on “Duty Again Today (Roscoe)

  1. davidmadison1942

    “I’m try to write this” should read “trying”

    We certainly feel his eagerness to get some, his sense of anticipation…..

    “…someone else has run off with the laundry keys and someone else wants to bring his wife aboard, but I guess that all goes in a day’s work.” Discipline seems to have slipped!
