Aug. 5, l!i.|4 Saturday Night. The Naugattick 'JDaily Cluircli Street,- .igatiick, Conn. Dear Sirs: J am dropping you these few :ies to thank you for the memo book which I received In the mail last week. It sure will come in handy. .1 also wish to express >»y gratitude to you for sending me The News every day. .U keeps un- posted with all the homo town news and makes home seem a lot nearer than it really is. It also keeps me posted on where some of my buddies are. '['hoy move around so much it is hard to keep track nf them. The other night while in one of our many p. X's I was talking to Art Grubcrman. Ho has just 1m- i.shed his training down hen;. He is also in an anti-tank company There were a couple of other boys from Naugy in his company bu I can't remember their names offhand. Also a.couple of men from Beacon Falls, The men that 1 am Ing now are from the Midwest. Most of them being from Michigan, .Illinois and Wisconsin, This is 1 an Infantry Training j Center and the regiment that .1 am in teaches their men to be an i tank specialists. It sure gets hot down hero, especially when you have to hike almost every day. You probably have heard how the infantry travels, well that's the way that we travel down here. There is one tiling that I haven't been able to llgure out since 'I have been here and that is why people from New England come down to Florida. I will admit that the climate is a lot warmer and different but there is no compuriMon''be- tween the North and the South. I have visited three or four of tho cities clown hero including St. Augustine. None of these cities are r.oiiV as beautiful and clean as our northern ones. They havo some pretty beaches down here, There is one beach in Jacksonville that reminds me very much of "Savin Rock" in West Haven. The only difference is thai there is a sandy beach about two miles long and .'100 yards wide. Jt has all the urnuje- ment.-i laid out almost the same as "Savin Rock." Another thing about Florida is that there nre no nice lawns, as there are up north. I will admit there are some nice ones in 'the cities but ovorwhere else all you see is »and and we sure see plentv of that. Well I guess will bo all for my comparison but T wish to thank you once more for your gift of tho book and The News. Yours truly. A-Sgt. Franklin J, Htihtiell, A. S. N. 31400100 Co. E. 223, I.
