Dear Mr. & Mrs. Valencheck:
As you probably know, your son has been selected for advanced training as a Navy man. He has been enrolled at this school for this purpose.
During the sixteen weeks he will be here, he will be given a specialized course of shop instruction and related class instruction which will prepare him to work for an advanced fireman's and machinist's mate's rating.
This letter is to assure you that we are intensely interested in giving him valuable training. Upon successful completion of the course, he will be eligible for promotion in rate and pay. He will have an education in a skill which will increase his value to the Navy and be of great worth to him upon his return to civilian life.
Please feel free to write us for any information you may desire regarding his welfare or his progress in school.
George Fender III
Lieut. Commander, USNR
