KATHY; Sorry I could not help you with this one. I’m still guessing the Rhythmairs were Marsden Allred and his group. The date has me confused?
I’m thinking September a bit early for the furloughs that were granted when it was announced that we were headed overseas. As I remember in September we were doing Army granted time killing activates. A number of the troopers hunted deer with army rifles and ammunition. A number of us spent nearly a week in Monterey, California at the County fair. The Draft Act had just been reworked so we were in for the duration and could be sent overseas. I wonder who in Mt Pleasant was giving this period a special emphasis. Sorry no help . But your posting has given me an idea for July. I’ll write a short article on our unit acitivities from 8 December ’41 to when I left the unit in May ’42.
