Saves Them, Benedict

Benedict Saves Them, Crow Creek Sioux. Fort Thompson, South Dakota. Ward of the government. Drafted.


I been in the Army 10 mo. and done my very bit in all my work and duty so that I got along fine and dandy. Our “Division,” the 13th, we’re well trained, of course we felt bad as we didn’t get to go for over sea duty. But any way I done my part, I went as far as I was told. We were just about to go, just than the “Armistice” was sign--

I want to say that I learn a great deal in the “Army” more than if I were to a “College,” two or three years. I felt better, stronger, when I was in the “Army,” “than before,” I’m still feeling fine as ever up to this present day.
