Thanks a lot for your letter received today. Good to hear from you and get the news from old Mpls.
I can appreciate your difficulties in the office, because had a lot much the same at NTS. I think those shore stations are all alike. They get the damnedest brain storms and don't know what its all about.
Your fortune sounded real interesting - let me know if any of it comes true, especially the romance.
Well I had my first real run in with Campbell today. I have been over at Treasure Island at fire fighters school for a week and just came back to Oakland last nite-and I found out he had been picking on my men something fierce and had sent N. Striker back to T.I. saying he couldn't use him and he was not worth a damn. After me spending lots of time teaching him how to make out requisitions and enter them on the record book. Well to make a long story short I went right to LT Greene the S.O. and I won out. The Striker comes back tomorrow. Boy was Campbell burnt up.
Also found out today there is no room at the personnel barracks so I go out on subs and quarters the end of this week. Okay by me-I just as soon live in town for a couple of weeks before we shove off.
Well Mary-this is about all the news-Wish you were out here-really- and we would go as I said to some of them swell nite spots. Remember me to Edwards when you see her please. Drop me a line again soon please-I still will get my mail at the old address. Naval Supply Depot Barracks A-1 Oakland
Bye for now and be good——-Your pal
