What effects, if any, did your experience have on your religious belief?:

If you took part in the fighting, what impressions were made upon you by this experience?:

What has been the effect of all these experiences as contrasted with your state of mind before the war?: His barracks had two close calls from zeppllins but he escaped unhurt. He was in Tokio, Japan, when America entered the war and volunteered but was rated Class V when examined and gave up any hope of the army. In a few months English officers appeared in Japan, begging for volunteers to carry Chinese coolies to France. He was appointed a Provisional Lieutenant in the British Army and went to Shantung where he drilled Chinese for some weeks. Then sailed for Vancouver (21 days on Pacific), then went to Halifax (12 days), then to Liverpool (14 days), and then (5) days to France where he arrived in the midst of the April drive, about April 25th. His service being over with the British he was carried back to London and mustered out. He at once applied to enter the American Army and while he had a heart murmur "that you could hear across the room" they had to accept him. He was among the first, if not the first American in Tokio to volunteer.
