Medical Service in the Jungle

Monday, Dec. 11, 1944

Poor Daddy sent a sad letter. He’s all alone in his hospital bed with only a crossword puzzle to keep him company. Mommy wrote today that she spoke to George, the doctor who just returned from service in New Guinea: “I thought I’d talk to George and get some low down. He said he’ll never complain about anything in the United States as long as lives after the nightmare of New Guinea. I didn’t ask for details – his emphatic sentence was enough to convince me of his sincerity. About the gall bladder, he said they don’t discharge MD’s for anything. He seems to be positive that you won’t go overseas because they don’t send any diet cases to plague the kitchens.”
