The Tattoed Man At Camp Dodge.

Camp Dodge - A fellow in the Eleventh Battalion was being examined for service and was stripped to the waist. He had an emblem tatooed on his chest, the emblem being an American flag, with the bust of Washington and Wilson on either side of it. The physician then thumped him all over, listened to his heart and lungs, and so on, and finally pointed to the design on his chest and said, "You are pretty patriotic, all right," "Yes," said the recruit "but that isn't anything. I am sitting on the kaiser and Hindenburg." He was, at that!
