He enlisted in the Air Corps in 1939, spending 18 months at Hickam Field, Hawaii, before becoming an aviation .cadet. Following his training at Kelley a):ld Randolph Fields, he was on the eastern seaboard, from whereo he flew antisubmarine missions. About a month ago he married a hometown girl.

I've been stationed at many posts, and many p _osts smaller than Drew Field have G. I. laundries.. MacDill Field has a brand new G. I. laundry thatdoes a .. soldier's laundry, (and well) for a flat $1.50 _per month. A man can send as m1'\n:V as 30 pieces a week to-the G. I. laundry there. At 'Drew Field we have to have _our laundry done by civilian laundries. As we all know, their prices are not the lowest and it is not an overstatement to say the work isn' t so hot either. (Example: twouniforms, or four pieces, costs me 80 cents in town, or. over half the cost of a month's laundry at MacDill. ) Would appreciate any information you can give on this subject. Hopefully, T / 5 E B L. (QM Lieut. Kiernan advises Reader E. B. L. and all other G. I.'s to take advantage of laundry service through squadron_ supply rooms. Since Drew Field is not authorized a laundry, the QM contract service with civilian concerns is the best .obtainable in view of the labor shortage. The cost, too, is within a soldier' s budl!t. Each man gets a 10 per cent reduction on his bill. Price example: 35 cents for a khaki uniform. Less 10 per cent brings the cost to less than 32 cEmts,-Ed.) Dear Editor: I noticed that the American Legion is pro moting plans for membership of service men after this war is over. My Dad, and many of his buddies of World War I belong to. the Legion today. Wouldn't it be a good idea if we could formulate an American Legion of all Allied Nations after this war?

Editor's Note: (Don't worry about the General and the Majors-if you get there first, you're the guy who gets the clubs. The course will be there for your use in your spare time, and officers and enlisted men will be treated alike. There isn't any preference-you get there early-yoUJ chance at the course will be determined bv YOUJ position in line.) ------------------'T'he Editor Drew Field Echoes Dear Sir: The locations of organizations on Drew Field change so rapidly that it is almost impossible to keep track of their phone numbers. Although the several information centers on the base are constantly on the lookout, it is very difficult for them to keep up with the daily .changes. Why wouldn't lt be possible for each organization's phone to be the same number as that of the organization itself? In that way, the ber of the 501st would be 501, the 903rd Q. M 903, and so on.. It would save so much time and so many headaches. AUXILIARY JOSEPHINE STIVERS
