Postcard 262: Postmarked Oct. 27th, 1943, Birmingham, AL

Called to Arms

My definition of a kiss
is a report to

Pvt. Attie A. Fleming, 44169751
Overseas Repl. Depot
Camp Stoneman
Pittsburg, Calif.

Sunday morning

Dear Mother & Daddy ,
I got into Birmingham
at 3:05. I got a taxi
to the L&M station
where I am now.
My train leaves here
at 7:45. I sent
Villard a telegram
a few minutes
ago. There were plenty
of seats on the bus.
Lots of love, Attie

Attie Fleming and his mother lived next door to my grandparents in Athens, Georgia. Dr. Fleming was a professor of Agronomy at the University of Georgia for over 40 years. He died in December 2011. These postcards are a delightful glimpse into his life during WWII. Thank you for sharing them!
