Inside of the Christmas menu at Training  Station, San Diego CA. December 1943.

The following is the message as shown above and following it is the menu for that day.

 

Greetings from the Commanding Officer

It is a source of pride to me as it

should be to you to envision our part

in the achievements of those who have

passed through this Training Station to

glory in the field and the opportunity

you have to follow in their wake.  That

their effort has not been in vain is at-

tested by the goals already reached;

that certain victory will follow depends

upon the spirit and manner in which you

carry on.

I wish for you and your families at

home who are thinking of you at this

season a very Merry Christmas and a

glorious 1944.
