It’s nice that each base had these postcards with pictures of what daily life was like. KP = Kitchen Police – sounds like a lot of work!

June 25, 1944 (click to see front)

Dear Mom,  today from 6AM to 6:30PM our whole unit was on KP.  In the morning I served toast to about 330 men, then mopped the kitchen floor, also scrubbed and dried enormous pans and pitchers.  Then later on helped with ice cream and bread.  I also helped make gravy for steak and opened huge boxes of meat.  Will probably go to movies tonite.  Love, Bru
