Here is an unmarked home recording of what I am guessing is an enlisted private, who had just left Los Angeles, telling his mom about his first few weeks in boot camp. There is no mention of names except the drill sergeant's and no mention of the date that this was recorded...although I am guessing that it's probably after WWII because of the mention of "helicopter school."
What comes across first and foremost in this audio letter is how young this person sounds...and to think of all the other young men writing home in the same situation.
I have no way of telling who this person was or what his future entailed.
But for all those that we do know the outcome...here is to their honor on this Memorial Day.
