1st Prison Company, United States Military Prison Guards, 1913.

On the back of this postcard dated December 1913, Willie writes an affectionate note to Miss Alice Randall. We do not know which of the two friends depicted is the writer, but both wear the silver insignia of the 1st Prison Company, United State Military Prison Guards. The 1st and 2nd Companies were at the United States Military Prison, Fort Leavenworth, and the 3rd and 4th Companies were at the Pacific Branch, United States Military Prison, at Alcatraz.
