Harold Shuford, Convalescent at Fort McPherson, Will Return Home Soon, March 10, 1919

From the Hickory Daily Record, March 10, 1919. You might be interested to read what Harold Shuford wrote in a letter from France. One in this blog on Sept. 22, 1918, was written after he was injured.

Wounded Soldier Soon to Come to Hickory

Mr. J.W. Shuford has returned from Atlanta, where he spent a few days with his son, Mr. Harold Shuford, who is a convalescent at Fort McPherson as a result of a wound he received in France in the summer. The muscle and ligaments of one leg and a considerable part of the flesh just above the knee on the lower side were shot away by a shell. The young man is expected home soon. He will always limp from the wound, but is hopeful of improvement as the years pass. Mr. Shuford said the wounded men in the hospital, with one exception, formed the jolliest bunch of folks he had ever seen.
