September 11, 1918 – Full diary entry:
“Hiked 5 miles to Maron stayed all day and leave tonight.
Got a letter from Nora.”
For once Robert had a shorter hike than the 140th’s Headquarters company, which had moved further east. From Chaplain Edwards in From Doniphan to Verdun:
After two miserable days, Col. Murphy moved us to Houdemont, a few miles from Nancy. In Nancy we found women running the street cars, and a fare of 20 centimes. Shades of Kansas City? On the 10th we marched out at dusk, retracing our steps past Chaligny, and reached Maron.
