I am writing because I am very angry with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command!
The first week of May 1985, I received a letter from the Department of the Army, Army Recruiting Command, inviting me to sign up in the Army Reserves. Included with this letter was a card, offering a digital Army wristwatch, free, if I answered questions about myself: age, education and Social Security number. This I did--truthfully giving my full birth date and educational data.
About two weeks later, I received another set of brochures expounding on Army Reserves and suggesting that I go to the Van Nuys Federal Building recruiting office. However, they did not send the free watch they promised.
A week later I wrote them at Fort Sheridan, Ill., that I had not received the watch and that I would appreciate a prompt response. Sure enough, about a week later, I received the watch with an apology for not having included it with the follow-up letter. Two weeks later, I received a second watch (first-class postage 39 cents). I'm now waiting for a third watch (perhaps?).
