Dear Mother:
Received your loving letter this
evening and certainly was pleased
to hear from you.
Well, we are transferred to this
camp for overseas service and may
sail most any time.
This certainly is a swell place,
the climate is just like dear old
Minnesota, and the scenery here is
great. Aeroplanes in the air al

There are 4 training stations
here, 3 military and 1 naval.
I suppose you have heard of
Hampton Roads, that is just 12
miles out from camp. There are
also naval shipyards here.
Well, we "INCOMPETENT In
dians" from the Reservation have
not done so bad. Tad, Ray, Myron
and myself are sergeants, and
Robt. Fairbanks and Johnson King
are corporals, and in fact nearly
all the Indians here are officers.
News is rather scarce so will
close with love to all,
