Col. O. J. Bond, Supt.,

The Citadel

Charleston, S.C. 

Dear Col. Bond:-

Some time ago you requested that I mail you a complete record of my military service, but, for various reasons, I have neglected to do this up to this date. I entered the service at Camp Sevier, S.C. on Nov. 9th, 1918- was assigned to Co. Y., 1st Provisional Regiment, 156th Depot Brigade. I remained with this organization until its demobilization and the re-organization of the entire regiment, on Dec. 15th, into the 1st Training Battalion 156th Depot Brigade, when I was transferred to Hdqrs. of the new organization. 

We were transferred to Camp Jackson on Jan. 2, 1919 and in Feb., I was assigned to Co. C., 1st Training Battalion, 156th D.B. where I remained until my discharge on May 29th. Commission- 2nd Lt., Inf., U.S.A. 

As you will perhaps note I am ^now at Carlisle School, Bamberg, teaching Mathematics

or, at least, branches of Mathematics, [illegible], Geometry and advanced arithmetic and directing athletics. 

I am very much interested in Citadel affairs and news and, if possible, would like to receive accasionally, a copy of the “Citadel News” 

I would appreciate if you would kindly inform me how this can be made possible. With kindest personal regards to you and the entire faculty and with sincere wishes for a very successful year at the old institution. I am.
