No letter from Lester on May 28.

There was no letter dated May 28, or any mention of this event in any other letter. Apparently, the entire school shared celebration dinners when one class completed its training. This was not Lester’s group, but the dinner invitation was in his scrapbook. He must have been included in the festivities, and perhaps contemplated his own graduation and assignment to a newly commissioned battle ship. His training continued through the early summer pending the deployment of his class in a few weeks.
