In recognition of his bravery and fidelity to duty under fire, a letter of recommendation from Vice Admiral Kincaid was presented to
Gordon Hill, FC2c.
Note: Name was spelled "Hegler" in newsletter, but after researching information in Deck Logs and Roster, it was found that "Haigler" was the man they were referring to.
Murphy, Y1c suddenly developed more than butterflies. It was an urgent case for the scalpel and our medical department came in slicing. Murph is now minus an appendix but judging from his grin he seems to indicate that he is the winner.
Note:...H. B. Murphy, Y1c, was the only yeoman I found in the Roster, so I'm assuming he was the "Murphy" they are talking about.
|The sturdy old SLC rode out the storm, but some of our shipmates took a beating. Fortunately, no one is seriously injured and it pays to be careful - a man could have been easily swept over the side.|

Tuesday evening there was quite a "jam session" in the Mess Hall.|

The next evening, M. S. Bordick, S1c held a "sway" with his electric guitar. Yes, we are still calling for singers.
1943: The State of Georgia has amended its constitution to make 18 the legal voting age. "If they are old enough to fight they are old enough to vote."
