Leonard Louis Nutter 300

Leonard Louis Nutter served in World War One with the United States Army. The dates of service are: Unknown .

 

He fought in the battle of Muese-Argonne. He received a Purple Heart and a medal from that battle with two bronze service stars on his ribbon from Muese-Argonne.

He was shot in the lung in France where he almost died. He told my grandmother (his daughter) that he almost died because they wrapped him up very tight and he doesn't remember how long he laid in the trench before he got help. The hospital told him had he sat there any longer wrapped that tight that he would have died.
