In a recent letter to the people of Kenilworth, thanking them for his Christmas box, Waldo Thorsen writes of the high standard of courage that Andrew Courtney Campbell, Jr., set for the young men from Kenilworth and of their determination to uphold it. Waldo THoresen is with the Rainbow Division in France. His letter reads as follows:

"Dear People of Kenilworth:
Just a short note of thanks for your kindness and thoughtfulness in sending me that wonderful box of eats. It came last Sunday morning and I was sitting on my cot reading letters from home at the time. I didn't have any idea what it was until I saw the name "Tibbetts & Garland" on the box after I had done quite a bit of unwapping. You surely had it wrapped up well and it came over in fine shape. When I saw the card inside it just touched my eart to think how thoughtful you had been of us. The boys here think about home continually and there are none that think a bout a better, finer, prettier little town so far in the West than dear old Kenilworth.
Let me say here that Coty Campbell was a wonderful example to us all and we all will surely try to hold up the high standard of courage and patriotism which he carried. We will do our duty just as he did even if it should mean that we, too, will have to give up our lives for America. We all admire him so much and are very proud of him, especially as he is from our town. With best wishes to you all for a very happy Christmas and New Year, I am
Very faithfully,
Waldo Thorsen
