Machine Gun Co., 116th Reg. Camp McClellan, Anniston, Ala. Now, dear Mother how glad I would be to see you and all of the rest I feel that this separation is all for the best altho you may not think so. I am not the only one who is away from home and besides I think the next draft will take most all of the boys and ask for me I won't have to be drafted and even if I could keep out I wouldn't feel right with all of the other boys in the army. I am so glad your head ache is improving and hope it will continue. With great love to all. Fred.
