Jackson, Charles E.
About 17,000 soldiers in camp, most going home on special orders or on discharge. Some are staying in France to set up businesses or marry French girls. "You would be surprised to see the number of American soldiers that marry here. I have seen several weddings take place... some very pretty girls here, but it would take more than that piece of paper so called discharge for me to make a choice in picking a wife in this country. But the girls back home will have to wake up as the French girls sure can win the boys."
