[drawing with notation] The Hike - Aisne to the Argonne Sept 1918 Roger McElhone Smith - 2d. Lt. 304 F.A. A.E.F. THE HIKE "Down came the rain! (It always rained on hikes . . .) The column moved slowly forward, the weary drivers huddled on their rain-soaked saddles. No lights . . . . this meant no smoking, which was worst of all. It was so hard to keep awake without cigarettes. But the 75's went forward - rain or shine, day or night - bad roads or no roads - FORWARD TO VICTORY! (Copyright 1919 By Snead & Co.)
