Company "A" - 351st Infantry, 88th Division, AEF
Along with the regiment, Company “A” came into being in September, 1917. A democratic crowd whose principal business was that of soldiering.
From the first day, until that day when the morning brought the sights of France, every hour was crammed with work which, as we look back at it now, was much more pleasant than at the time of performance. Company “A” did its hitch in the lines with the rest of the regiment, it is proud of its record, and of its cheerfulness through the trying days of waiting.
It is with pride that I look back at Company “A” and realizing that but a few days mark that time until we all get home again, I want to say that 1 wish you well; I know that the future holds big things in store tor each of you.
