Description: A Christmas card sent by Sargeant Walter Guess, 41st Division, U.S. Army, Rockhampton on which he wrote :

'Dear Ann, I would like to give you this greeting in person, but as I can't do that a card will have to be the next best thing. The picture is me on my way fishing it was the day we caught the catfish I told you about. Sincerly Walt'.

    I believe this is his information. I found only two Walter Guess's in the US National Archives Military Records. The other Walter Guess didn't join the service until 1943. Sgt. Walter J Guess US Army s/n 39153168 b. Jan 11, 1912 d. Jun 10, 1996 Buried at Los Angeles National Cemetery aad.archives.gov/aad/record-detail.jsp?dt=893&mtch=2&...
