In the Battle of Argonne our supply wagons couldn’t reach us for several days- and some of the boys got weak and faint I showed the boys how they could keep their strength up by eating Elm tree buds and bark while marching into the forest I observed that some of the trees were slippery Elm trees, which acted as food to all those that eat it.
