One hundred years ago today, Sergeant First Class Shetler was discharged from Evacuation Hospital Number 49 in Coblenz, Germany. Back to the kitchen, grandpa.
He didn’t have far to go. Company A was quartered in a former German barracks known as Telegraphenkaserne, just a five minute walk as we learned in his previous letter. Here are photos of the place from 1919 and one hundred years later. The buildings are now apartments and have been altered over the years. But they have a very long history. Jay and Company A are part of that history.
