Bob - “Unstamped Underwear” - Feb. 8, 1953

Bob gets his weekend pass pulled for having a pair of underwear out of sorts during inspection. At least it wasn’t for having dust in his canteen cup. Fittingly, he takes the weekend to launder and sew what seems to be his whole wardrobe. Wednesday’s trip to the Baltimore symphony was a success, although the organist’s dinner concert later that evening was much more to Bob’s liking.
