Our training here is most severe & overdone. We are overworked, given unnecessary hardships & deprived of privileges due to us. Long & difficult rout marches almost daily, night bivouacs, reviews, divisional & brigade & company drill, and various strategic attacks on specially located towns. The sand is very unhealthy & has caused defective lung trouble to many of the men.
