“Just in from the pistol range etc.”

This is part of a letter Pvt. John Clarys wrote to his sister, Anna Schnaidt on May 19, 1941 from Camp Claiborne, La.  The red bull on the right is part of an old shoulder patch called The Insignia of the Red Bull which was used by the 34th Infantry Division. The 164th Infantry of which Company K was a part was one of four infantry regiments of the 34th Infantry Division. The shoulder patch was used until December 8, 1941.
