Thomas Gibbons Letter

 Collection
Identifier: SC 01379
Content Description Letter from Camp Lee, Virginia discussing basic training in the Army in preparation for war. Thomas, who signs his letter, Roy, laments that he is being held back in the United States as surplus troops in support of others heading over seas. Gibbons writes January 20, 1943 on his letter, but the envelope is postmarked 1944. The later year is most likely the accurate dating of this correspondence.
