Soldier who died at Fort Yuma, CA

In its day, Fort Yuma, California was the hottest army post in the nation. Dr. Tripler shared this story with Grant and his wife, Julia. It concerns a soldier who died at that post.

Quote:
"Doctor Tripler said that the dead soldier soon opened communications with the Army through spiritualists and reported himself 'getting on pretty well, but he really wanted his heavy overcoat.' When asked why, he had explained, 'Well, after a man has been at Fort Yuma for a while, Hell is an awfully cold place."
