stretchers were being used. I
decided then it would be test to
carry Davidson to the First Aid
station about a mile down and
leave him thero, so I could bring
back the satire stretcher. I Tiid
so and returned about an ho:iir
' later- As I was making tor the
bill. I saw the few who were IeU
in our platoon coming down. Cor
poral Siegel told me that just as
I left "Ernest was killed by an
other shell I went up to the
spot anyway, to get my blankets
-and equipment. I coulu find no
trace of Ernest, the trees ' were
felled by the shells and the land
was so disrigured it was impossi
ble to traverse it.
The gad news was spread rap
Idly from company to company
of our battalion, till every one of
Ernest's frienda knew of his
death. How sad everyone felt.
He was continually on my mind
for a long time after that event
ful day. Only a few days later
while I was in the hospital 1
dreamed of him. Even now thai
some time has elapsed every time
I think of that experience, re
morse brings back to me the
thoughts of those old days in
France, when I had the honor of
eoldiering with a man like Ern
est, who was so staunch andi
Many a soldier whose deeds
could not be compared to Ernest's
was given a D. S C or Croix de
Guerre, which only goes to show
how some individuals with real
courage and bravery were recog
nized in the A E. F.
Above all I" want you to feci
assured that your son's name
was borne to the battlefield un
sullied, and that his soul was de
livered as clean and as spotless
as you' would wish it. The name
"Eckerlen" in our company was
significant of one who was ever
ready to defend a good canse,
live a clean life and die a hero
I heartily hope that this ac
count of your son's heroism will J
tend to ease the pain you have
suffered by bis loss, and, it makes
me feel highly honored to say
that I have never forgotten Ern
est In my prayer3 since that terri
ble day. Let us trust that after
the utmost sacrifice he who did
so much for the great cause will
be rewarded by eternal happiness.
I hope that from this letter you
will also larn how -proud and
exalted all the boys oT ts? oH
Seventh company have felt, for
having known and soldiered with
a man like Ernest Eckerlen. So
in closing, my dear Mrs. Eckerlen,
let me again extend To you my
heartiest feelings of sympathy, in
behalf of the members of the Sev
enth company, who as myself will
never forget the valiant death of
your gallant son. a rsal marine
and a true patriot.
Respectfully yours,
P. S. If It is possible for you
to send me one, I would ask for
a picture of Ernest. I urn sure
there is nothing I would appre
ciate as a gift more than a pic
ture of that old buddy of mine,
whose loss J have felt as If we
had been brothers.
