About Bluejacket Mail: A Postal History of the Great Lakes Naval Training Station

I recently published (2014) a new book Bluejacket Mail, a postal history of the Great Lakes Naval Training Station during the First World War. This monograph concentrates on only this facility. It came about because the full facilities book could not contain all of the interesting information about every military camp in the United States from that era. This 42-page monograph helps provide more depth of information, and showcases the letters written in 1918 by Carroll Miller, a sailor training at Great Lakes. His letters show the human side of the great influenza pandemic of 1918, along with stories of camp and personal life.
