Sun, Aug 8, 1943: real bugler

“A real bugler has been assigned to the job of awakening us in the morning.  In the past Reveille has been sounded by a buzzer, but from now on Freddy Fruhauf, hot jazz trumpet artist from Wichita U. will take the place of the watch officer who pressed the buzzer button at 0600 as the most unpopular member of the company.”
-- Letter from my father, Cape Girardeau, Mo., to Joyce Sooter, Winfield, Kans., Sunday, August 8, 1943. Joyce was his cousin.
