Bob - October 19th, 1952

Bob is finally assigned to a company. He and his S&P pals are the newest members of the 516th Airborne Infantry Regiment. They don't have a full company yet so they still can't start basic training. Not that Bob minds, he's been able to relax by reading and listening to classical music (and drinking a beer or three)!
