AMERICAN Y.M.C.A. ON ACTIVE SERVICE with the AMERICAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCE
drawn up a list of everything that we use and those are the things I want you to get.
I am now a veteran warrior having been assigned to the 1st Division which is the 1st division that arrived in France -- they are regulars and have been holding their sector of the front for a long time. I go back in -- in a very short time, but while I was out I wanted to write and congratulate you and be sure to tell you what not to do.
Sincerely hoping that I may hear from you in the very near future. I am as ever Your loving Bro Paul.
Lieut. Paul W. Derrickson Co B -- 28th Inf. A.E.F.
