Enclosed a postcard from my Grandfather Adolph Lang to my Grandmother Esther Lang from Spartanburg 1918. He called his sweetheart "Ettie" and she called him "Dolph". He returned home unharmed and they lived to have a loving family. He was a doughboy in training at Camp Wadsworth and appears as the center trainee marksman from 1916-1918.There is a scanned map of the camp on another web site at The Brooklyn Genealogy Information Site. This is a very large image file and may take a few minutes to load completely.
Grandad "Dolph" was a pistol...a lot of fun with a ton of outrageous stories. I'll always remember him with great fondness.
My Dear Ettie I have no more stamps to send any letters and I have just enough money for the pictures I wrote John a letter about that money and the add. you are going to put in the Paper I hope you and our Boy are well & happy From your husband Dolph with Love & Kisses to you Both
