Up to, and including the elevenJJ

Havre, we traveled by rail to the
lage of Tanlay, France, where we re
mained until Sept. 17th, going frol^
there to what is known *a the St. Die
Sector on the Alsace border. Thie
sector was xpry quiet during our thir7
ty days occupation but enough hap*
pened each day to ke?p a (ellow
minded that a war was on.
In our post of observation we coul?}
see the Hun in his from lines and he
looked very harmless from a dffetafttf

fell near him he usually answered
iback with his 77.

that our division, (Wildcats) 81st. was
made up of such good soldiers that
they would place us where there wa?

According to orders, the 321st and

Horse stable manure in the stalls and

manure, because that in halls and
