Training in the USA
Letters from Harold J. Dahl
Well here I am - with fellows from all over the place - and they all say we are going to get a tough work-out, so I’ll be pretty hard before long. I hear I’m to get a week-end after about 3 weeks which is the end of my detention period. The fellows are very friendly and helpful. I guess I get my duds tomorrow - at the moment I’m the only guy in civilian clothes in the whole camp of 60,000.
The ride down was uneventful and a little boring. At Baltimore I had a wait of over an hour so I ate and then happened to meet some fellows who were coming down here.
Will you tell Dr. Boquist my address?

Well - so long for now - regards to Lucy.
P.S. Please send me as many clothes hangers as you can - but camouflage the package - URGENT - Harold.
