Excerpt: Chapter 1. WATCHFUL WAITING IN CAMP. ?THIS thing is getting some monotonous, Bob, and there?s no use denying it!? ?None of the boys in camp seem to like it a whit better than you do, Sid, for a fact. I hear complaints all around about the inaction.? ?We?re still in Uncle Sam?s service, though the job we were mustered in for guarding the border while Pershing and his Regulars started on that wild goose chase down into Mexico, to round up Villa and his crowd was long ago finished, and our regiment ordered back to Virginia.? ?Just as you say, Sid, the Government decided not to muster us out. By turns most of us have been allowed brief furloughs, so as to run over and say ?howdye? to our home folks. We had to show up again in camp, though, when our time expired; and here we are still, doing a grinding duty.? ?It?s watchful waiting, all right, Bob. I wish they?d either turn us loose or else drum up something of account to do. We certainly had enough of this tent life down on the Rio Grande border.?
