Friday
Dear President Stoughton,
Greetings from across the many, many miles separating us. In spirit, however, I'm still very close to Staten Island and to Wagner and my friends there. And I hope to be with you again, soon, with the war all over with and a more permanent peace established than we have ever known.
Quite a few of your "boys" are in the service now, I see by the "Bulletin" and I know you are proud of that. At any rate, I hope we will give you cause to be so. Among others I see that my good

friend Bob white is now "Ensign Robert White."
Would you be so kind as to send me a transcript of my college record? In the near future I hope to make aplication for cadet training in aviation, and I shall need it for that. This is my first request for a transcript. If there is any charge I shall be happy to forward it to you when you acquaint me with the proper amount. My address is:
P.F.C. Anthony Scala
198th CA Band
A.P.O. 919
c/o Postmaster,
San Francisco, Cal.
Thank you very much for your attention to this matter.

Kind personal regards to Mrs. Stoughton and all your family, yourself and all my friends among the faculty and students at Wagner.
Yours for Victory,
Tony Scala
