Wartime Memories of Cary Grant

Re Marylouise Oates' Sept. 14 column on the tribute to the late Cary Grant: I was stationed as a nurse at the U.S. Public Health Hospital, U.S. Marine Hospital, Evansville, Ind., where many of the young men were drafted in 1940-41. Among these was Vincent (Vinnie) Schneider of Evansville.

He was sent to Ft. Polk, La., and proudly sent pictures of Cary Grant's memorable visit to the camp. Cary Grant was one of the earliest stars to make camp visits and it greatly impressed those young soldiers. I doubt if many people know that Cary Grant ever did his bit, this way.
