    • Letters from Reed Parent to Gladys Hendrix while he was in the Army in France in WW I interspersed with the diary he kept during those months. She had these when she died, and re-read them often. She didn't like his "bad language" in the diary and tried to discard it when she lived with us, but I (her daughter) rescued it from the trash. I typed them exactly as he wrote them. I can't explain all the references, and he used a lot of French words as he had learned some French. When I could identify a person I did, but I can't identify all people with the nicknames he uses. Reed Parent was a with the Co C, 336th U.S Infantry, American Expeditionary Forces in France. He never made it to the front.
