GEN. WOOD CONDOLES WITH PALMYRA FAMILY
(By Staff Correspondent)
Palmyra, Mo., Nov. 4. -- Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Bohon of Nelsonville, Mo., parents of Harold S. Bohon, who died at Camp Funston recently, are in receipt of the following letter from the commanding officer of that cantonment:
Camp Funston, Kan.
October 19, 1918
Mr. Marion Bohon, Nelsonville, Mo.
I wish to express to you my sympathy in the loss of your son, Private Harold S. Bohon, of base hospital, medical dept., who died of pneumonia on October 15, while in training at this cantonment.
Harold Bohon's sacrifice was full and complete. He gave his life for his country and in so doing gave the most that one can give. He gave as those are giving who are dying on the battlefields of Europe in the great cause of humanity, free institutions and that this country may live in security.
Very truly yours,
Major General U.S.A. Commanding
