About Letter 84
Bill laments that "Radio code is getting worse and worse for me." He learns to his dismay that he is a "guinea pig" in Signal School whereby low scorers in the Signal test are taught under a new system. Worst of all is the boring repetition of code where "a man becomes a machine." Bill undergoes the Signal Corps version of booby trap training which he lambasts saying, "just about everything they teach here is wrong."
