About Letter 40
Bill spends an unexpectedly interesting day on K.P. At midday he goes into the field to help serve lunch and gets a chance to see the surrounding countryside for the first time. It doesn’t impress him. In the evening he listens to Gabriel Heatter on the kitchen radio, catching up on the war news. He takes note of the date, the 2 year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
