Here are some of the documents Dad signed when he first reported to Fort Sheridan in Illinois. The first two appear to be the application to send part of his pay to Mom. First rule of newlywed soldier – thou shalt not get thy wife’s birthday wrong. Mom’s was April 30, 1925, not October, as the form indicates. The third document is an insurance policy for $10,000, while the last document is an application for a $25 War Bond.
