Letter from 18 Feb 1919 from Glenn to his mother

Letter dated 18 February 1919 from Glenn Kaiser to his mother

Feb. 18, 1919

Dear Mother,
Just a line or two letting you know I am feeling fine but feel like fighting. There is an order out now that there will be no moving of troops for 60 days, so it looks as if we will stay for a day or so. Well this is not like it’s been at the Front. It is not so cold here and has not been. They say that we have seen all of the cold this year here, and I hope I am not here next year. This is a map of the Chateau Thirbury and some of the Fronts we were on altogether. We were at five fronts. We were driving 20 days on the Verdun without any rest at all. It rained 15 days out of 20 and the Germans shelled us three times a day. That was in Oct and in Nov we just got to the Meuse on the 10 of Nov. and the 11 it was over. The 2 of Sept we went in the Soissons that is were I saw Guy.

Well this is all I can think of just now. I am getting the DeKalb paper all O.K. but not the letters. The last one I got from you was three weeks ago. I hope this finds you all well and hope I see you soon.

From your son Glen Kaiser
Hdq. Co. 127 Inf
