Fort Thomas,

There was thinking among some parts of the army that African Americans would have more disease resistance in fighting a war Cuba, and should be used in lieu of Caucasian troops.  They came to be known as “The Immunes.”  It was of course not true. There's lots more on Google. If you have an interest, we suggest this site

“Orders were issued at the War Department today directing Maj. Dana Palmer and Lieut. Norman McNeil to go to Newport, Ky., for temporary duty in obtaining enlisted men for duty in Siberia. Both officers will leave San Francisco August 15th. ”   July 15, 1919 Louisville Courier Journal “Residents of Fort Thomas were startled Tuesday when a sentry, Private Taylor, pursuing another soldier, a prisoner, who was trying to escape, fired two shots at him, one taking effect and fatally wounding him in the groin.  No information as to the identity of the prisoner was given; the authorities at the post refused to make any statement concerning the matter.” Courier Journal February 19, 1919
“The Highland police have been ordered to arrest all women who appear at Ft. Thomas after dusk without escorts. Many complaints have been made in the past few days of the behavior of women who visit the fort. These complaints were renewed Monday evening and led to the new order.” from the Kentucky Post, July, 1898

Hello Dick. This life is allright in a way, but I say you are lucky to have kept out. Suppose you and Boots are taking good
