Camp Claiborne, Louisiana WWII Letter 1945

Written by a Lieutenant at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, during WWII, in 1945. From the letter……..

When this letter came, I was playing a game with some of the fellows, it was lunch time and we were having lotsa fun. This game is sorta nuts in a way, the idea is to toss a 2 inch diameter washer into a three inch hole from a distance of about twenty five feet. It’s kinda like horseshoes……..Tonight I had “open hut” again for the fellows, Gad! How they can put away the booze, a bottle of hooch lasts just long enough to take the cap off……no one got drunk, but several were drunkish. The difference being that a “drunkish” can still stagger. One of the boys mistook a light socket for the bottle opener and was quite shocked to discover his mistake……...
