Sweet Girlfriend

Camp Crowder, Mo. - Pvt. Francis Tann got a letter from his girl telling him that she had herself a new boy friend. Then Tann learned that the ex-sweetheart had used his car, which he had lent her for the duration, on dates with the new boy friend. Tann found out also that the War Bonds he had bought and put in her name were to be used to underwrite the honeymoon (of the new couple).

Not all the members of the greatest generation were great.
