KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Army of Occupation
Well write you
a few lines to let you know that there is still such a person as myself
over here. And that it's been almost two weeks since I've rec'd a
letter from you.
Of course I'm
not saying anything only I hope you'll take the hint and get busy.
We are having a
dance at the Y.M.C.A. tonight. Don't you want to go. I am certain
I would find you plenty of partners as there are only two other
American girls there and about two hundred soldiers. The girls are Y.
workers. They come to this town once or twice a week and serve us hot
chocolate and pull off a stag dance in the evening of course it isn't
as much fun dancing with boys as it is with girls. I have your own word
How did you
come out with the exams you spoke of? I haven't heard the results
of mine yet. Will probably write out instead of cpl. in front of my
name tho when I do hear.
What is your
thinking of our "Army of occupation" insignia? It is the blue circle
with a red O and a white A.
Speaking of the
"hid" proposition, in Germany I'll say this much. The sure has an
emense army growing up. More kids in this one town than the whole state
of S. Dak. or Iowa either.
Wish I knew
when we were coming home. We sure will be as you said. "A happy bunch."
Well must ring
off as my bunkie wants to go to sleep and my light bothers him, just a
plain old candle.
Cpl. A. T.
L. Co., 168
Lieut. 168 inft
