This excerpt from Evelyn Kaiser's letter to me — about Babe "bribing" an army censor — sounds completely in character. We've seen flashes of his sense of humor and mischief in other letters.
I find this letter to be particularly poignant because of that line about civilian life—and the fact that he didn't get the chance to be a civilian again.
Plus, Babe tells his parents about a couple of other Mount Kisco boys he met in camp.
"We couldn't write letters while we were riding the trains and we rode the trains quite a bit."
Soldiers in the army were apparently trained about what they could and couldn't say in their letters home.
