T/Sgt. Bill Coody Points Out Tha
Veterans Still In Service Can
Great Bend, Kans
Dear Editor Bill-It has beer
msome time since I wrote you, s(
decided if I wanted, to come home
any time in the 'near future I had
better get on the beam and write
Still, I do have a special reason
so do you mind' if I speak to more
than just you and say:
HI Fellows and Friends-I know
this is rather an unusual way'to
'contact you, but it is the only wa>
I can reach most of you boys. with-
out doing a lot of writing.
As you boys know, I was over-
seas for quite a while just as. you
.are now, so I have a pretty good
idea of what your life is over
I am sure all of you fellows
have heard of the V. F. W. (Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars). Well, fel-
lows, I am a member of that or-
ganization and have been for over
a year. As you .probably: know, you
can join while you are still over
there! The dues, are only $3 a year
through a post, or $1.50 through
National Haedquarters at Kansas
As you fellows well know, we
don't have a post at Port St. Joe,
but if you will join we can have
a post-a post to be proud' of. So
I am asking .you as a fellow sol-
dier and member of the armea
forces to think it over and, join so
we can have a post after this is
over. All of you men who have
served 'overseas or are serving
overseas are eligible.
"As you know, our friend and
comrade, Lt. Willis, V. Rowan,
gave his life for our freedom, andt
the. American Legion Post at home
now proudly and honorably bears
his name. I am suggesting that
we, further honor a local boy,
friend and comrade who laid down
his Iffe that America would stay
free Cornelius Kirkland ana
name our post for him.
lI would like to hear from you
fellows and will send you any In-
formation you want about the V.
F. W. So come ,on, you fellows,, let
me know what you think of the
idea. And I mean all of you-
Capt. G. G. Tapper, Lieut. Stone.
Billy Montgomery, Bobby Cobufn,
Leo Kennedy and all the others.
All you soldiers, sailors andi ma-
rines. Thanks fellows.
Well, thanks to you, Editor Bill,
for making this possible. Hope you
are o. k. and for now "30."

is that I'm not leaving the county
but will be in charge of the mo-

I would like to take this oppor-
tunityi to thank each and every
one of you for the splendid co-
operation you gave me as your
county agent. I hope to have the
same co-operation in the new job.
I feel sure that you will give the
new county agent the fullest co-
We have come a long way to-
gether, you and I, in the field ot
agriculture in, Gulf county. Let's
don't go back. Let's continue for-

demonstration agent, experiment
station and a soil conservation
district in our county there, is but
one way to go-FORWARD. We
,have what some counties dream
about but seldom ever achieve.
So when I say "Thank you for
your co-operatiop," I really mean
it. Only by pulling together as
one team can we succeed not only
in agriculture but in many other
