[Wounded Soldier]

Description:

The postcard caption partially reads: Survivor of the Battle of Carrizal. It seems that the African American sergeant is the recent survivor of the Battle of Carrizal (Metz, Leon, Fort Bliss, page 83). The African American sergeant has three chevrons on his right uniform sleeve and appears to be one of the highest ranking men among this group of men. He is also wearing driver's goggles on his hat. There is no accompanying information given about his identity. The postcard was post marked out of El Paso, Texas, February circa 1915 – 1920 and is addressed to: Mrs. C H Breslin, Union Hotel, Altoona, Pennsylvania.
