Letters from George Daley
To: Mrs George Daley, Depot St., Hyde Park Vermont
Return address: C.E. U.S. ARMY
ENGINEER REPLACEMENT TRAINING CENTER
FORT LEONARD WOOD, MISSOURI
28 July ‘43
Thought perhaps you like to know in what condition I arrived here – latest reports are everything is o.k. – I got in St Louis Monday nite at 5:00 and stayed Monday and part of Tuesday there – I arrived here late Tuesday and had to wait until today before getting down to business --.
I was assigned to a training unit this morning but I had only been there about 10 minutes before my assignment was cancelled. I don’t what the story is but I think I’m shipping out for a new post this afternoon – if you don’t hear from me for awhile don’t worry – I don’t know as yet where I’m going and it may be possible I’ll stay here – This place isn’t the ideal post and I don’t mind leaving it at all – yesterday it was about 112° when we arrived.
If I ship out I’ll try and drop some cards on the way – five of the fellows that came here from Omaha have gone to Alabama – but you can’t count on that --.
I guess that’s all for now -
