Download PDF for this date

Tape recorded messages from home will be sent to Jewish servicemen from Long Island, now on duty in Vietnam and other overseas posts. The project, called the USO “Living Letter,” is sponsored by volunteers of the National Jewish Welfare Board’s armed forces and veterans council of Long Island, a member agency of the USO. The recordings will be taped from Monday, Nov. 13 through Wednesday, Nov. 15.
