Is Private W.E. Prince coming or going? He mentions being stationed soon, but this postcard was sent relatively late in the war.
During World War II, Camp McPherson served as a major intake and discharge point for servicemen and women. Later renamed “Fort McPherson,” the Atlanta, Georgia installation has a long and storied past, a prominent participant in U.S. Army history from the Civil War up through the 21st century.

About Camp McPherson
During the First World War, Camp McPherson housed foreign prisoners of war, mostly Germans. Fort McPherson was closed in 2011 due to the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission, and its tenant units were moved to other installations.
