Title

A Short Course on Rotation from SWPA to USA

Description

Ship Returning - WWII Drawings.
An application for "A Short Course on Rotation from SWPA to USA" with a description of the course and purpose of the two week course on readjustment to the gentler life in the United States. Color illustrations on either side of the title and one of a ship crossing under the Golden Gate bridge.
Maurice explained that when the war was over they wanted men to re-enlist so they offered them news they could go home for a 3 month leave and them go back into the Army. Most of us wanted to get out of the SWPA (Southwest Pacific Area). When they went back home for their three month visit they had to be a gentleman. Maurice created the illustrations for this Manual of Behavior while someone else did the writing.
