hve been in foreign lands the fact
has at last come home to' me that,
the navy is not maintained for
the purpose of waging wars; but
rather for the purpose of assuring
our country of peace. Especially
I find thi3 true while in Sydney

afforded us the opportunity ot

The navy not only has educa
tional courses to fit its personnel
for return to. civil life, 'but it pro
vides competent instructors as
well. The navy is strong for
good, clean athletics. We have i
church services on board ship and
the routine drills keep us mental
ly alert and physically fit. So
you see that when my enlistment
expires I expect to return home a
better man, morally, mentally and
physically. Thanks to the "navy.
I hope that you will find it pos
sible to comment on the value of
the navy editorially . on October

the importance of its service to
the country and would like to
have everyone acquainted with its
men and its work.
