I received rny fourth copy of the
Hoover Rai.l and enjoyed it very much.
I believe it gets better each month.
I Imov/ inany of you 'jnust work pretty
hard getting this paper out and I hope
you realize in pai’t how much we appreciate
all you good people are doing, V/e are
pretty busy sometimes and fail to write
as much as v;e should but nevertheless
we are thinlwing of those back home and
hurrying the day when wo v^ill be back
swapping yarns on the corncr and doing
the things we left off when we carae into
I want to thanl: you for the sovjing- IdLt. It wi22 corae in handy and it also
reminds me of folks back home whenever I use it,
I hope your garden 'and chickens do ■vjcll for I am planning to come home on
furlough about the middle of July, and it has been a long time since I ate fried
chicken. Best wishes, • , ^ .

Received ray thi.rd copy of the Hoover Rail today and it gets better ovary time,
I ^vish to take this time to thcjil all v/ho arc responsible for the paper, and thanks
also for the sewing kit. It sure will cone in handy. In fact I thinlc ray socks
need darning now. Anyway its a great idea aiid a swell paper. So just keep*era
coraing. I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting anybody from back home yet so it
gets kinda’ lonesome sometimes but I just get my paper out and start reading it
and it gives mo a new strength and I feel that someday sonewhere I will meet some
body from back there during ny army career. I thiiilc that if all the boys that
worked in the Dye House or Uill could got together over there wc could sure mop
up on the Japs in a big v;ay.
Well, guess I had better park for this time, but don’t forgot me when the
next paper starts rolling,

Just received third copy of **Hot off the Hoover Rail” today. I think its
K . a grand little paper. I enjoy reading it very much. Some of the other guys hero
on the ship got a kick out of reading the jokes and poems. Somo of them wanted
to read it today before I had a chance to read it myself,
I also receive a copy of "The Rotary Grara" sent out by the citizens of Shelby,
which is a very nice little paper . I found the names of some of the boys from
our county who have been reported f.iissing 'in action, I was very r.TUch shocked to
know Everette HcNeely, one of ry best friends, has boon reported missing in action.
Wc Icnow you people back home arc sti eking beliind us and we are all willing to go
just the w ay Everette did if it will keep Old Glory waving high,
'iVoll, wish I could tell where I am and, what I am doing, but can’t. I still thinlc
the "Navy” is the best branch of service. I was pronotod to Searian First Class the
■ first of this month, '
That’s about all I can vjrito, but I v/ill be looking forward to the next copy of
your fine little p;ipor. Youi's siiicerol^^,
Ezell V, Poole
