To the Editors of "Hot off The Hoover Rail":
I have been waiting to write for sometime cjid tell you all how much I have
enjoyed reading the paper that you sent to me. I was especially glad to find
out where my old friends are stationed.
I am assigned to an anti-aircraft unit of the Coast Artillery and an; talcing
up the machine gxin. It is all ver;; interesting and I like it fine, V/c are on'
duty and working from twelve to fifteen hours a day. Tao things I enjoy most of
all are reville at five A.M., K,P. .'j:d guard duty. The \/orst thing is the cold
v;cathcr that we have up hero. Our barracks are onl;'- about two hundred yards off
Lake Michigan. It’s a little rough on us southern boys. Incidontl;’' about njjicty
percent of the soldiers in our Tatallion aj’e from the south, many of them from
Considering ever:rbhing I tliinlc the men in the ^5th Coast Artillery arc pretty
lucky as we get gcod food and sleep in sterxi heated barracks.
Well all you good pcnplo keep up the good work rnd j'-ou can depend on the boys
in the sci’vicc.
