First - my grandfather, Maurice Leonard Reed (1891-1972). He enlisted in September 1917, after completing two years of classes at Michigan Agricultural College in East Lansing. Assigned to duty in Columbus, Ohio, he often said later in life that the only reason he wasn't sent overseas was because he knew typing and shorthand. After his marriage to Ruby Marie Chase, Maurice was assigned to Camp Zachary Taylor in Kentucky, whee he was stationed until the Armistice was signed in November 1918.
I am very proud of him.
I am very proud of all of them!
