About Letter 39
The camp rumor mill is “grinding away at full speed”, indicating that Camp Abbot will close in 4 weeks and move to Needles, about a five hour drive from Bill’s home in North Hollywood, California. Bill admits that this sounds too good to be true. During the day the company works with anti-personnel mines and booby traps. Bill draws a sketch portraying the action. He is scheduled for K.P. the next morning which he describes as “the lesser of 2 evils” since he will miss a 10 mile hike.
