Here is a story that bears re
peating. It didn't happen in our
reciment. In fact it is told of
our enemies, the REDS, but it is one
of the best stories which has come
to my attention circulating around
campfires. A private of the Red

prisoners dressed in blue denims

nextx Tuesday morning for Jack

at Chattanooga and the second
night at Athens, Georgia, as we
did coming up here, arriving at
Fort Jackson by 2:15 Thursday
afternoon.- The present schedule
calls for our being paid immediate
ly and allowed to go home for the
week-end, a three-day pass. This
of course will be for everyone who
can possibly be spared from Fort
Jackson. I imagine 75 per cent
of the entire personnel will get to
go home, and since I hope to be
among that lucky 75 per cent, good
bye until next week.
