An article from the Bismarck Tribune dated November 7th, 1917.
My great uncle Ernest Julius Erickson's letter he penned about
his days at Camp Lewis, Washington, months before he would be
stationed in France as part of the 361st Infantry Regiment.

The “Skookum” Regiment as it was called was adopted from the 
Northwest Indians where the 361st was formed in 1917;
it is translated as: on-the-ball and trustworthy.

My grandfather Frank would eventually join him in France.
Both would serve in the Ypres-Lys; Meuse-Argonne; Lorraine campaigns in 1918.
