42d ReunionsMy father says that he never heard Grandpa talk about the war other than to say that he was a mule skinner. But he did attend at least one reunion in 1939. I have some materials from that reunion.
My dad also said that Grandpa was a member of the Dyer J. Bird American Legion post and that he could remember seeing mail that had come from the "Dyer J. Bird American Legion" post.
A.D. Boyd received a post card, mailed July 5th, 1919 from Carlisle, PA.:
I am OK. Hope you are well. Write to me. I wrote you once but got no answer. My address is,
U.S. Genl. hospital-31
Your old pal
So who was "Scrap Iron" - apparently an injured comrade in the Army hospital in Carlisle?
