July 7, 1943—W.T. Jack: My Life In the Service

Well – I am now a student of B.U. We registered today. Two or 3 Cols & several (-unreadable-) made speeches & entire “student body” had to sing the B.U. Alma Mater. What nonsense! One piece of encouraging news—the courses may be counted toward a college degree. Of course, only the science will help me, but every little thing will help. We were also told that arrangements shall be made for us to visit Concord, Lexington, Plymouth, and other places of historical interest. I sincerely hope so.

I’m still trying to find my “level.” The kids around me are awfully nice (too nice) and awfully young. They are very swell to me. I’m sure I will be able to find friends with similar interests, etc. I had better get paid soon or I will be forced to beg in the streets.
