Diary of Burt Post Sept. 7th, 1946

We had Spam tonight. What is that stuff made of anyway? Maxine did a good job of it but this rationing is getting on everybody's nerves after a year of plenty. It's harder to go back once you tasted the future. I hope it is the future again. Things were looking so good. Truman was following FDR's lead and putting the country back to work again on an economy based on the little guy and his wants and needs and now we're back on rationing.

I guess sacrifices have to be made if we are to defeat the Russians. I just don't know if it's worth it. Our whole lives given once again to war. It just doesn't seem right.

Phillip shipped out already to parts unknown while his older brother Dick goes to another training. He sure has been trained in his two years of the Army. Was he a swimmer. 6'2" with big hands and feet. He flew through the water at the YMCA. Still holds many of the records there. Then he went and swam across Green Bay. Now that was a feat rarely done and in record time too.

I wonder if they will use his swimming skills. From what I heard about the army there is not much of a chance.
