Glenn Pratt was a member of the 137th Infantry Company M. His letter found in the July 12th, 1918 Lindsborg Record recounts life at sea on the way over to France. Entertainment while on the boat, as Pratt recounts, consists of two band concerts a day, a daily paper printed right on the boat as well as the reading of books and singing all the while.
Sergeant Glenn Pratt was slightly injured while overseas. It is known that Pratt, through suffering from shell shock and being gassed around September 26th, was able to make a full recovery.
