       WWII letters

From Frank R. Schooler

U.S.N.T.S. Bar. 840 S. Co. 447
Great Lakes, Ill.

Hello George,

    Well I suppose you have heard that I didnít get into the army with the other boys so I enlisted with the navy. I like it here fine, so far; even better than what I know of the army. We have very near the same drill as in the army for 6 hours a day; the rest of the time we do as we please unless we are on guard or in the chow gang (kitchen gang.)

    Well I will close as there is a show at the Y.M.C.A. tonight.

Yours Truly,
Frank R. Schooler

P.S.  Just went out to see the aeroplanes go over. There are several flying here every day. Please send me a copy of The Record.
