I spent part of this morning looking around for my grandfather’s WWI record. (Did you look under the sofa, MB? Your socks, reading glasses, and a fudgesicle stick were there just yesterday.)
In the 1990’s, I wrote a Racine Journal Times column that included some tidbits about Grandpa Joe’s service in that war. Soon after the article appeared I received a letter from a local history buff who said he could get probably more info about my grandfather's military record. I talked with that pleasant guy and told him what I knew.
