Courting Miss Nora - January 25, 1919 - "Just got back"

Tom’s service record shows he served overseas from July 31, 1918 to January 25, 1919.  That means he boarded a ship to Europe on July 31 and returned to American soil on January 25, which is 5 months and 25 days.  He sent this postcard on the very day he returned.

Miss Nora McNeill, Millers Creek, N.C.
Well I am glad to say I am in N.Y. City at the present time and going to Camp Merritt N.J. Will write you soon. Sweet Dreams. Bye.
