Postcard from Art Zastrow to his cousin Alma Zastrow of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. The postcard itself is die-cut in the shape of a bullet with patriotic slogans and an artistic portrait of a World War I Doughboy on the front. The note on the postcard inquires about the health of his family in Menominee Falls, and shared news that on that day, November 8, they were leaving Camp Hancock but did not know where they were going. It is signed Art Zastrow. There were several Arthur Zastrows enlisted out of Wisconsin during World War I, but this postcard likely belonged to Arthur F. Zastrow of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Records indicate he served at Camp Hancock, Georgia, until he was transferred to Great Lakes, Illinois, to be discharged in February 1919
