Transcription

Thurs. Rained hard all night with lots of lightening. Tent city flooded out. Very low clouds all day and an occasional light rain. Spent most of our time in drill. Was one of 25 chosen out of the whole camp to take weather forecaster exam but did not take it. Want to review trig and algebra first. Quite a few of our gang have left. I'm glad this county is sand instead of mud. Chas
