One Day Nearer ...-VICTORY...-

Lieut. Jack Blair 503rd. Parachute Inf. A.P.O. 704 - c/o P.M. San Francisco, Calif.

Dear Jack:

Thanks for your letter. It was certainly one of the finest I have received any time since I have been writing to the men in service. I am glad you like the Alumni Magazine. Another is due shortly and another news letter is going out this week.

Thanks for the news of your classmates. I think I have most of them with the exception perhaps of the fact that I did not know that Bill Hunsicker was in service. I am glad for the news of your brother Oakley. We will add his name to our service list and see that he receives the information which comes from us from time to time.

Your information on the paratroopers certainly was interesting. It may be that some of our boys who are not already in service would be glad to join up.

Thanks for the snapshot; we will try to use it in the Alumni Magazine. Lot of luck and drop me another line when you have time.

Cordially,

John H. Wagner

Alumni Secretary
