U.S ARMY MOBILE VETERINARY HOSPITAL NO 1

November 14, 2009

Greg:
I believe you and I corresponded a year or so ago. My great uncle Walter Jensen is mentioned in the paragraph below that I copied from your website. You'd asked when we last corresponded if I had a photo of Walter in uniform. I knew I had one somewhere, and today I just found the photo album with the picture I remembered. The photo is from 1919 in France--that's what the caption in the photo album says. Walter's middle name was Daniel. He was actually christened Waldemar Daniel Jensen. He came to America from Denmark in 1892 as a teen and anglicized his first name.
