One letter from Leonard Eugene Graeff to Susan Prowell Graeff and Raymond James Graeff dated September 15, 1943. He begins commenting, "Second day now- what a life, seems like I lived a novel today." He mentions that the navy was always more appealing than the army, noting "all the barracks floors are hardwood and walls & stuff are painted in light colors." He relays that he received his sets of bedding, clothes, and boots. Signed "Leonard."
