KP all night long! Regarding the reference to Private Hargrove – it was a book – a funny book – about a young fellow who goes into the army and his life in army training camps. It was also made into a movie. I might have to get a copy!

Dear Ma and Paulie,

Had KP again From 7:30PM to 6:15 AM last night-all nite.  We slept today through morning and afternoon.  During KP, another fellow and I peeled half a ton of potatoes(with a machine) and cut 90 lbs of butter into 4,320 pats.  Then a few of us were on work detail this afternoon in the post-office.  We had an enjoyable ride in a mail truck to the town of New Cumberland where we unload mail bags.  We will probably be shipped any day now, maybe tomorrow.  After all this KP I feel like Private Hargrove.  Will probably go to library tonite and write letters.  Love,Bru
