Zoot suit Army uniform

Sunday, April 30, 1944

Get a load of these funny jokes! There’s no Sunday paper here, which means no comics. So The Medical Officer_April 23, 1944my mother is reading aloud the jokes in the Carlisle Barracks “Medical Officer” my father sent:

“She: With all these shortages, I’m wearing my old undies and saving my new ones.”Girl Friend: “For a rainy day?” She: “No, dearie, for a windy one.”

“Pvt: “Is the CO in? Sgt: “No, he went out for lunch.” Pvt: “Will he be in after lunch?” Sgt: No, that’s what he went out after.”

“But, Betty, don’t you trust me?” “Yes, jerry, I’ll gladly go to the ends of the earth with you but I absolutely refuse to park on the way.”

The newsletter also has this funny picture of the natty summer dress uniform.
