For everyday clothes Dorothy wore brown and white striped seersucker dresses with bloomers to match, cotton hose, socks, field shoes and fatigue hat. They weren’t allowed to go out of the barracks without that hat except for fire drills.
Dear Mother and Dad, Thursday
We are all feeling happy tonight as we are allowed to wear our garrison caps off duty. I wore mine up to the PX for the first time tonight. I had a letter from Cpl. Baclam tonight. Gee I think that is swell. Alot of the kids have gone out and three from upstairs are going around short-sheeting the beds.
Dot’s dog tags were issued after the first couple of weeks. They had to be handed back twice: once to record immunizations and again to record Dot’s blood type.
