This badge belonged to William David Cape who lived and is buried at Concho.  It may be a reunion badge, and not one he would have had during the war. Submitted by Lola Carlile

Rama Alpha Dodson was the youngest of the Dodson girls. She married Horace Earl Kinard of Paint Rock. They raised a family in Paint Rock until Earl's death in 1934. Rama sold the Chevrolet Sales Co. there and went into business for herself running a boarding house in Paint Rock, mostly for teachers. Her three girls were still young and she made a good living for them. When her father, John Freeman Dodson died in 1938 she also took her mother to live with her, Alice H. Cummings Dodson. After the death of her mother, Rama took the girls and moved to Eden where the girls had jobs. In Eden, Rama took in sewing and was a wonderful seamstress.  Rama never had an idle moment. She was always busy sewing or cleaning or cooking. The whole family came often to her home  for Sunday dinners. She had a bright Christian outlook on life and was loved by all. In this picture, she was a Red-Cross Nurse in El Paso during WWI and expresses enjoyment in a letter from home.
