U. S. Naval Training Station, San Diego, California. Merry Christmas.
Description: U. S. Naval Training Station, San Diego, California. Merry Christmas.


Greetings from the Commanding Officer: It is a source of pride to me as it should be to you to envision our part in the achievements of those who have passed through this Training Station to glory in the field and the opportunity you have to follow in their wake. That their effort has not been in vain is attested by the goals already reached, that certain victory will follow depends upon the spirit and manner in which you carry on. I wish for you and your families at home who are thinking of you at this season a very Merry Christmas and a glorious 1944.
