For Evers: I Will Leave You With This For Now

No post for the next week or so, I am off to Russia in a few hours. We will be touring Moscow and St. Petersburg. A little nervous, beyond scared, but I had to realize the reality of the country and educate myself before I go, which turned out not the best thing to do. I just hope I will not be paranoid the entire trip.

Unlike the World War I enlistment records/drafts, you will not find, well at least, I have not found microcopies of the actual record.
