Found this in my FILs things, thought the condition was great for the age.  Dated 1945 but it has a loose sheet with an address correction in it.  He got out in Aug of 46 or it may of been his brother-in-laws who got out in Jan of 46.

 

I'm sure it has little value as a collector as millions would have been printed but I found it interesting.

While they may be pretty common, they can sometimes have invaluable information regarding the veterans service.

Very nice! I have one that belonged to an Engineer in the pacific. He was in Japan for occupation and got out in mid-1946. I think I also have an envelope that was sent out to him, sadly no letter was inside.

Sadly no envelope with it.  I was shocked the address correct sheet was still with it since it was just a loose sheet.

 

It has what appears to be a train schedule penciled in on the back cover, but not where the stops would have been so that's a guess.

I wonder if this letter was given at the same time since it references the booklet.

I like how the form letter, without any mention of the individual's name, talks about handling "You" in a strictly individual and personal basis.

Typical Army. We have served you well because this paper says we did.
