1918-6-3 To Liverpool


To Liverpool, England.

             At Last when the dawn of June 3rd 1918 opened we were in readiness to aboard the train for New York City. Out company had been entertained by continuous rumor about our place of arrival in New York. The majority of our group started with the idea that we would remain at Hoboken, New Jersey until we sailed, which as will be seen later was another wild story.

That morning of June 3rd was a busy morning. Our boxes and barrack bags were all piled outside ready for the trucks to haul them to the train. The barracks were swept and our packs were gotten ready to sling over our shoulders


 at any minute at the order of march. [Inserted–] The sign “TO vent” [MSC—not clear] In speaking of cleaning the barracks, I should not neglect a word concerning our care in always cleaning and keeping barracks and roads clean after us. Our artillery regiment had this good name of being very particular in this respect.

The colonel with his adjutant finally came about that morning, gave us an inspection and inquired of each individual if he was ready to go. Of course every man responded affirmatively. Who would have the nerve to step out in front of that company and say that he was not ready, after he had trained for nine months with that same


group of men. I think that I am speaking for the whole group of boys when I say that we were ready—not only ready but willing. The boys would have been sadly disappointed had they missed the opportunity of crossing the sea.

After the Colonel inspected, the order march was given and we went directly to the train, which was in readiness for us on the track. All our seats were numbered and our names were written on or near each seat.

The sergeant was to have a seat to himself. As a rule sergeants in the U.S. army are treated just about the same by an officer as a private, and as a full


fledged American, I believe that is as it should be. The thing to be despised worst in the army is that thing relegated from medieval times, which we call class. I which that we might have an army without that word.

           In some respects the army is very democratic, in others it is very aristocratic. It is democratic, because every one when he is drafted or enlists is placed upon an equal basis. A common bum wears the same colored and the same priced suit as the millionaire—again that is as it should be, but just as soon as we cross the borderline in to the commissioned class, that democracy ceases and then aristocracy creeps in. They claim


 that it is necessary for discipline. That may be, but it is the most cutting thing to an American to withstand, that is to respect and obey a young man with bars on his shoulder, who perhaps was the employee of the private (American) [army?—msc] before the war. However, we can say that in most respects there was and is closer contact between the enlisted men and the commissioned officers than in any other army, unless it be the Canadian.

           We were disappointed that morning. Our train did not suit us. There were no sleeping cars save one and it was for the officers in charge. Surely there had been a mistake! We were to travel three days without sleep. Oh! well we


 later in our army experience that we were treated like lords on that trip.

            Our departure from camp was in some respects a sad one. We knew that our week end passes had come to an end, and that probably we would never see our people again before the war ended. Very few of us ever dreamed but what we would come back. If we look at the army statistics and note the casualties we will notice that the names recorded there are many in comparison to the time we were in the fight. We Knew, though that those who died  did not do so in vain—rather the opposite. We were not permitted to  Friends were not permitted to visit the leaving trains.

  8. Hi, i think that i saw you visited my web site thus i came to “return the favor”.I’m trying to find things
    to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

  9. I’ve admired Kanye West for a long time. His music has had such a profound impact
    on my life. The moment I first listened to “The College Dropout”, it was clear he was
    something extraordinary.

    What I love most about Kanye is his versatility.
    He transcends being just a rapper; he’s also a producer, designer,
    and entrepreneur. There’s no limit to his creativity, and he is always pushing the envelope.

    Thinking back to when “808s & Heartbreak” was released.
    It marked a major change from his prior music, but it highlighted his
    fearless experimentation and risk-taking. Songs like
    “Heartless” and “Love Lockdown” were so different from anything else in the music scene at the time.

    Kanye’s influence on style is just as remarkable. The Yeezy brand transformed sneaker culture.
    The innovative nature of his designs and have started trends around the world.
    I own a pair of Yeezy Boost 350s, and they rank as the most comfortable footwear I’ve ever owned.

    A fascinating element of Kanye’s journey is his knack for reinvention. Each
    album he releases, he brings a new sound, a new theme, and a novel approach.
    He’s almost like a musical chameleon, adjusting to whatever
    he feels at the moment.

    Watching him live are a whole different level. I was fortunate to see him live on the “Saint Pablo”
    tour, and it was one of the most memorable concerts I have ever attended.

    The energy, the floating stage, and his audience engagement were phenomenal.

    Despite his controversies surrounding him, Kanye’s genius cannot be denied.
    His openness about his mental health challenges and its impact on his life and career.
    This aspect of him adds a deeper layer to his complex persona.

    Ye is an iconic figure in music and beyond. His impact on music, fashion, and culture is vast.
    He is a polarizing figure, but his talent and influence are undeniable.
    I eagerly await what comes next from him and how he will
    continue to shape the world with his creativity.
