Title William H. Snape Correspondence: Louis Murphy
Object Name Letter
Date 1944
Creator Louis Murphy
Description Dear Gang,

Well, here it is now time for another Round Robin, My letter is a little late, because I do not have a minutes spare time down here. Every minute I have off I spend in Memphis on liberty, so there isn't much extra time.

I am now in Aviation Radio School training to become a radioman. Most of you probably know that I was dropped from the ranks of Avaition Cadet after thirteen months of training. I wish now that I'd joined the Army Air Corps.

I am fortunate in having a chance to fly down here. I can fly with one of my old instructors in a Vultee Vindicator, or a Stearman. I also fly at the Civilian Airport here in Luscom's. So I still got a chance to fly every once in a while.

Memphis isn't too bad a liberty town, but there isn't much to do. I'll say goodbye now until the next Round Robin comes my way.

Good luck to all,

Louis
