Geneva  NY

The old USO building at the top of Seneca St. and Main
St., Geneva NY.

Postmarked Geneva, N.Y. Sept. 8, 1943, from a sailor
stationed or training at the U.S. Naval Training
Station at Sampson on Seneca Lake.

Dear Jeanne:

Remember me. I met you this afternoon. I am writting
this to you from the U.S.O. I will write you a nice
long letter tomorrow. Don't forget to answer me.

All my love

The sailor's return address was:
J. Bronitsky 17-S
Co. 580(?) Unit G-18
Sampson, N.Y.

Before being used as a USO during WWII entertaining servicemen stationed at Sampson Naval Training Base and the Army Ordnance Depot, both located across the lake in the Town of Romulus, Seneca County, I believe this building was used as an automobile dealership. After WWII it was a Civic Center and used for various community agencies. The original building may have been one of the early churches in Geneva.
