Harold Strait was home from Camp Raritan Arsenal, Metuchen, N.J. the first of the week for a brief visit with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Strait.  He has been at Camp Raritan for only a short time having been sent to Camp Hancock, GA., where he was in the Ordnance Supply School and Machine Gun School, until recently when he was brought north.  Thursday while on a hike with 45 others he was informed that the detachment has been assigned for overseas duty, with a probable destination of Russia, and that he was to act as clerk of the detachment.  Harold has added weight since entering the service, having gained 15 pounds and is feeling fine.
