Charley Besaw was a private in the 354th Infantry Regiment and was killed in action at Meuse-Argonne on November 1, 1918.

He was my Grandfather's uncle, and my Grandfather remembered when he was conscripted and when word came that he had been killed.

Charley was a farmer and was engaged to be married when he returned. My Grandpa said that he was the "fun" uncle, and was always telling jokes.
