Transcription of Postcard

Transcript of Postcard (1951-05-10): Dear Mrs. Slozak, I am that buddy of Joe's that is in the Navy with him. We were separated and I'd appreciate it if you would forward my address to Joe -- and maybe send Joe's new address to me. Have you heard from Joe? I'm down here going to school. Joe wasn't so lucky. John Novosel Jr. SA 926-54-38 RM School - Class 23-51, USN Rec. Sta. Norfolk 11, VA. Thank You.
