Dear President Stoughton,
Within a few weeks I received one issue of the Bulletin and one issue of the Wagnerian. In both cases I noticed the Ft. McClellan address. Since the war my address has changed about five times. The last address is as above and I’m in the Hawaiian Island somewhere.
The last time I wrote you I was a Pfc. Now I’m a Sgt. Technician doing pharmacy work and also some laboratory work. There are a great many things which I learned in Wagner which I am using in my line of duty. Pharmacy work is fun. It reminds me of the days with Dr. Brabec, making mixtures, etc. Oh well those were the days!
According to the Bulletin there are some new faces and names in the faculty. Too bad I can’t take more courses now, but due to obvious reasons I can’t.
It makes me feel good to receive the two issues because it shows that my former college

hasn’t forgotten me. When I read in the Wagnerian about the new move to send Wagnerian issues out to the Wagner men in service, I was overjoyed. You’d be surprise the elated feeling a person gets to read a very familiar paper and read familiar names of former classmates.
Way out here I had a curious streak in me, wondering what my former classmates were doing. The Bulletin and the Wagnerian answered my questions. Send me more, I’ll be looking for them.
I can’t say anything more about what’s going on and what I’m doing, because, at this stage of the game - it isn’t safe! So I’ll close off and urge those students who pledge donations to be proud and glad to have the privilege to do so voluntarily. I need not say more.
So long for now; I want to hear more of bigger and better enrollments of students in Wagner. Larger enrollments means that Wagner grows larger and larger on the map.
Sincerely,
Sgt. Anthony DiGiulio, 20219500
