It was a delightful surprise to learn of your marriage. Needless to say, we wish you the very best of happiness. I think
you are very wise to do it at this time. If I have any regrets about my own marriage, they are that it didn't take place
I don't remember whether or not I indicated to you that I was not contented at Norwalk. We loved the living there, but
the hospital was less satisfying.
Partly an adjustment problem - I missed the Navy terribly. At any rate I resigned, sold my home, and entered the Veterans'
Administration. I expect to
stay in the V.A., although not necessarily at this station.
The reverse will bring you up to date.
Again, best wished and good luck! If you ever pass our way, don't neglect to look us up.
