Fort Eustis, VA
June 8, 1942
Dear Mr. Stoughton,
Thank you so much for your kind letter to me. I imagine a statement was sent to our house on Staten Island, which was not forwarded to me. I shall mail you what is due as soon as we are paid again, when that will be I don’t know, as we are being moved around so much from one unit to another.
I have now been transferred to the graduate camp. Am living in a tent and eating from a mess kit. And enjoying it very much. In a short while I expect to know whether or not I’ve been accepted for Officer’s School or not. I shall keep you posted as to changes in address etc.
Attending church one Sunday I found that the Chaplain was a Wagner Alumnus - Reverend Edmund

[Page 2]

Bosch of the class of 1922, I believe. We have had some interesting conversations since making each other’s acquaintance, and I’ve been much benefitted by his service. He is a very spiritual and live person, who is keenly aware of his responsibilities to his men. I am enclosing a copy of the church bulletin for this past Sunday, thinking that it might be of interest to you.
My new address for a short time will be —
Headquarters Detachment
Third Group
Fort Eustis, Virginia
Sincerely,
Howard
