Letter from LeRoy A. Miller, United States Navy, to Helen Miller, in Oshkosh, WI. L. Miller (A.S.) Co. 130U.S.H.T.S. Great Lakes, Ill. 9/11/43 Dear Helen, I received your letter yesterday and I was glad to hear from you. I would have wrote last night but I got three shots yesterday and I didn't feel so good. Now I am glad I didn't to Farrugut because it sure is a swell place down here. It has been quite cold the last few days down here. I have a caught a cold. I like the Navy just well. Tell Grandma I am going to Aviation's Ordinance service school after I graduate from boot training. It's to bad you have to go back to school so soon, I know just how you feel. Are you going to O.S.T.C. this fall? I get around one to four letters a day, only one day since I've been here I didn't get any. I haven't wrote to Marvin yet because I lost his address and I'll appreciate it if you will send it to me as soon as possible. You told me to tell you what I'm doing. Well that's a big order. I'm drilling washing clothes. Taking physical and mental tests, getting shots, washing clothes and drilling, standing watch every day, writing about 4 or five letters a day, drilling, washing clothes, and playing football. There are some more but mostly I'm drilling and washing clothes. No letters will get boring to me no matter how many questions you ask! Tell Alex (hello) from me Write soon Love to you all LeRoy P.S. I believe I [am] picking up a Southern drawl down here there are so many guys from Georgia.
