Military Correspondence





An official letter should refer to one subject only.

In writing to the War Department address your letter to The Adjutant
General of the Army, Washington, D. C.

The United States (including colonies) is divided into the following
departments:

(1) The Northeastern Department, with Headquarters at Boston,
Massachusetts.

(2) The Eastern Department, with headquarters at Governors Island,
New York.

(3) The Southeastern Department, with Headquarters at Charleston,
South Carolina.

(4) The Central Department, with Headquarters at Chicago, Illinois.

(5) The Southern Department, with Headquarters at Fort Sam Houston,
Texas.

(6) The Western Department, with Headquarters at San Francisco,
California.

(7) The Philippine Department, with Headquarters at Manila. P. I.

(8) The Hawaiian Department, with Headquarters at Honolulu, Hawaii.

You will be in one of these departments. Address your communication to
The Commanding General at his department headquarters.

Answer all official communications promptly. This is important. Letters
must be written, folded, signed as prescribed by the War Department.
Models illustrating the system are furnished by the Adjutant General's
office, Washington, D. C. Ind. is the abbreviation for indorsement.
