Lt. LaBoiteaux Embarkation Instructions

Note: This item is currently in storage


After arriving at port, completing the necessary last minute preparations, and perhaps squeezing in a bit of last minute fun, Signal Corps members were left to await their embarkation instructions.  Lieutenant Andrew J. LaBoiteaux received his instructions on October 4, 1918.  Issued by the War Department and stamped, “Confidential,” these orders informed LaBoiteaux that he was to report to vessel #206 at pier 61 on West 22nd Street in New York City at 11am on October 6, 1918.
