Well, this was probably discouraging. A letter dated July 12, 1943 to my father informs him that he does not qualify for Aviation Cadet Training (for the Army Air Corps.) Now I am beginning to think that it was at this point he began eating so much to try to gain weight (not starting the previous year.) He would have received this letter, and then tried for a little over a month to gain the weight he needed to qualify.
