For the New Rainbow Soldier 42nd Inf. Div. [cover title].


Small and ephemeral item intended for those assigned to the 42nd Infantry Division and receiving their training at Camp Gruber, Oklahoma. A short history of the Rainbow Division and of Camp Gruber is given followed by helpful orientations; facts like Army pay, mail, athletics, chapels, camp theaters, etc. Scored music and lyrics for the song “There’s a Rainbow in the Army” is printed as well as a page were a soldier could paste his picture with the opposite side of the page being a partly-printed form to list all of his specific infantry assignment designations. This leaf was intended to be be ripped out and mailed home to family or friends. OCLC locates one copy and attributes authorship to Norman Monath, author of the Rainbow song.
