Vintage Postcards - a Glimpse from World War 1

I'm going through old postcards to list on Etsy.  Some of the notes are charming, others sobering.  Here is one of the later...  Gettysburg, PA 1917 – Dear Dr. Green, Hope you are having a great time.  I’m in Gettysburg today for Army test – passed O.K.  Been drafted.  Likely to go soon.  I’m hoping against hope that it will not be before you get home.  Hope I see you, Earnest K.
