To whom it may condern;
I have known Sergeant 1st Class Thomas C. Larson for the past year while he has been in the military service of the United States. He has always been an industrious, intelligent and faithful worker, absolutely honest and dependable at all times.
I do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wishes the services of a man who will at all times be loyal to those for whom he is working.

This information was had written By Kathryn Boyd Larson on the outside of an envelope containing an Army promotion document for Thomas Clarence Larson.

Important Army record of your dad who was a First Class Sergeant in the Army cooks and Bakers School.
First Class Quartermasters core was a good place to get off hand information. Your dad really was in the "Army secret Service" and the cooks and bakers school was an excellent place to get first hand information from off hand conversations among the workers in the food department.

The document on the inside of the envelope contained a promotion document that promoted Thomas Clarence Larson from Private to Sergeant First class on January 5 1918.
