Dear Mother:
Well we are now settled down in
a little village in Luxenburg, where
we spent Thanksgiving day and ate
Thanksgiving dinner. We were not
lucky enough to get any turkey, so
our battery went out and bought
nice pig and had it roasted and with
what other things they bought, we
had a fine meal. I don't think we
will stay here long, but will move on
towards the Rhine.
I certainly have seen some real
battles during the four months

Dear Folks:
As this is Thanksgiving, and it be
ing a holiday, I have nothing par
ticular to do, so thought I would im
prove the time by writing you a few
I don't know whether to thin
every one has forgotten me or if
have just had my letters "ditched,'
as I have not heard irom anv one
since the last of September, so you
will kind of have to excuse me if
don't write as often as I used to
Anyway there is not much to write
about these old French towns. As
far as our work now is concerned
it is simply waiting. I don't know
what for, though either we go in
to Germanv or back to America. No
one ever knows where he is goin
until he gets there.
Well, I guess I will tell you that
I was on the western front from Oc
tober 14th to November 10th, or the
day before the Armistice was signed

couple of good scares in one night
Four of us were laying outside when
the Fritzies started shelling and in
a snort time the timber was lull or
flying shrapnell. The gas came over
in waves and I happened to get a
little of the (smell) gas, which made
me pretty sick for several days and
a large number were sent to the hos
pitals. They have not come back as
yet so I do not know how bad they
I hear thev are sending them all
home from the hospitals. I wish
:ould have gone now but anyhow
hope it will be soon. One day this
week I saw a guy that was trans
ferred to this company and he said
le was in Camp Cody with the boys
from Plattsmouth and came over
with them. He said that Art Sanip-
ion was in this division and that he
llso helped to bury Matt Jirousek at
ea. I could scarcely believe it, as
this is the first I have heard of any
Plattsmouth boy paying the price,
but I guess it might happen to any
of us, no one knows.
Well. I guess I will close for this
ime. Wishing I could be with you
all. Best regards to everyone.
P. S. Say. Frances, tell mother
uhat it is no use for me to try to
'end a picture as you wouldn't know
ue. and as far as church. I have been
to several French churches and if a
man was at the front very long he
never would forget his prayers.
I might be a little early, but you
:an't tell how long this will be on
he way, so I wish you all a Merry
'hristmas. Give my best regards to
all my friends.

ing and no place to go will try and
drop you a few lines.
We are now ready to take a vaca
tion. We have started twice and
they canceled it. so we are still liv

28 of us out of our company schedul

Well, Sis. I sure would have liked
to been in the state and saw the ex
citement, but in another way would
not take anything in the world for
the experience that I have had and
the things I have seen. But so far
as we boys celebrating when the ar
mistice was signed, why there was
nothing to it. The only difference
was in the noise from the guns, as
everything was quiet and the boys
could walk up and down the road
without keeping close to cover.
But I suppose that away from the
front they had a big time. But as
you know when a bunch of men lay
In the trenches all the way rrom
thirty to sixty days it does not make
much difference. We had been in
the trenches 37 days and when the
armistice was signed we were in the
woods near Fay-an-Hay. But we were

Pon-a-Mousson and also the St. Ma
