WWI, WW1 Letter, Camp Jackson, South Carolina, October 29, 1918







Written by a soldier at Camp Jackson, South Carolina, in October 29, 1918. The letter is written on Ordnance Motor School letterhead.

From the letter……..Say I see now why I did not get the flu if eating and sleeping keeps it away. There would be no chance at all for me to get it. You see when it started here they give us an extra hour in the morning but did not have taps till 11 P.M. But I seldom ever heard taps as I would go to bed before that time…….There was a lot of mechanics sent to Alabama today as instructors. They took two from our shop, some from the truck drivers, some from the tractors, etc……...
