The last few months we've been catching up on our home work, drilling, maneuvering and things all your political and economic principles, so we can shoot holes in them when I get home. I've formulated some pretty harsh opinions and I've proof to back them up. Reckon I couUl even sell Herb and Barney on a couple.

(Editor's Note--The following letter from Cant. Roy Wagner was mailed from "somewhere in Alaska" early this month. A few days later Captain Wagner was ordered back to the United States in La Porte City the first half of this week). Shangri-la Terrace 7 March 1943 Dear Everett: Comes now "Old Wag" and his annual report with plenty of poppycock to give thc censor the fits. Not of my own volition, however --the chief purpose is to renew my subscription to the Progress and herewith arc a few fish for that--consider this my request. The weatherman finally let the mail through yesterday and "oh daddy" did I ever score hits. Most of thc men thought I was sick because "the old man" was actually smiling--maybe human, huh? IS 7 o doubt you have been ca.lmj me a nigger for lo these many months, but thc time has really whipped by. (If y" don't know I'm kidding--I am.)

Forrest Brunk, which reached us too late to be set up for this week, in which "Skippy" describes his experiences during the landing near Casablanca and describes with a good deal of humor his life in Africa 'since that time. Don't miss his letter. It's well worth reading. vegetables-also my hands. I want to tell everyone hello and if they can write, be sure and do it.

Haven't been able to tear myself away to attend another session since. Have a fine bunch of lads in this company, The junior officers are swell and very dependable-they hail from New York, California, Michigan and Oregon. There is never a dull moment. Of course the "old man" is a badger of the first water, but we get along. My first sergeant reminds me of Harry Esher--coz "Esh" ain't as big as Bcnchina but they joth travel 90 miles an hour. This 'top kick" has only had 28 years service and soldiered in every country there is. Since I can't get a leave it's fun to get him started on his past ventures and travel .he many lands by mind wander- ng; and figuring him as a darned liar and discounting his tales 70 per cent you still have a nice trip. One sergeant is a dead ringer from Brian Donlcvy in thc movies, and he's really a ball of fire. It took a couple of months to accomplish, but I now have the stage all set. Everyone works like two niggers, but "Wag," he does thc worrying and supervising (whatever that is) and catches all the hell from higher headquarters. It's a treat to me to see our 'huskies" work; couldn't be without dog teams here. The lead dog seems almost human; they trot along pulling their hearts out and as you approach a fork in the trail they look back with n he would want me to say hello to everyone, so I will. "Hello!" This is certainly a beautiful place, nested down between thc mountains nnd the pines all I around. Also there is a very nice ilakc here, and I have only seen lit once. It is spring here and be- jfore long thc rain will bei?in to fall, so I hope that I will graduate soon. It is against navy understanding for me to tell too much about the camp, but I will say t h a t it is bigger than you con imagine, also it is very new and undeveloped. My shipmates are a swell group of fellows. Most of them from Minnesota, Iowa, Montana, Wyoming and the west coast. They arc all young and we arc known as the wildest company on the station, but really we are a group of sweet little "angels." Do you believe that? I want to thank you again for the paper and I'll knock it off at that. Yours truly, Bob Van Fleet H. R. Van Fleet--a|s Company 66-43 Camp Waldron, U. S. N. T. S. Farragut, Idaho Fort Knox, Ky. March 16, 1943. Dear Everett, Just a few lines to let you know that I am located at Fort Knox, drive chairman, it was revealed today by Mayor Roy F. Hawkins Exact figures for the new quoUi were not announced. There had been some feeling that this community's I M S quota --nearly three times what was pledged last year--was far higher than could be reached. Mayor Hawkins and Wcldon Belts, co-chninncn of the present drive in this city, report t h a t almost every man of thu larjri- group iisked to help with the solicitation reported p r o m p t l y and is now at work. Figures and progress thus far in the drive have not been compiled, but response is said to be satisfactory. Convention Next Week men urn- red nut to Chester Crew Works On Wrecked Church L. IJ.
