Camp Kelly, Texas Jan 1918
I am nicely located at this camp and assigned to the aviation section
of the Signal Corps which is a fine branch of the service. New men are
coming in every day and others going out. I do not know how long I will
be here nor where I will go on leave.
I wish I could take a trip to one of our N.A. Cantonments and see
what wonderful things have been accomplished during the last few months.
They are all practically the same but one has paved streets, lawns,
trees and all of the conveniences of a city, in fact, a large city.
There is one thing the folks at home should know about and that is
the great work the YMCA is doing at these camps. Every citizen should
boast about it and help it along financially. There is no other
institution that is doing so much to help the government make things
comfortable and homelike for the soldiers. So, whenever the YMCA
subscription list comes around I hope it will be well subscribed.
The Red Cross is another institution that deserves the support of
every man and woman.
We are having fine weather here. It's just like Indian Summer.
