Francis J RodererFrancis J. Roderer served in World War 1 with the United States Army. The dates of service are: Known October 1913 - July 1919.


My Grandfather was in the 1st Engineers. His name was Francis J. Roderer. He was born in St. Johnsbury, VT in 1892.

He enlisted October 31, 1913. He served in the Mexican Campaign and Punitive Expedition. He subsequently went to OCS at Fort Leavenworth and was commissioned April 1, 1918. I have his original commissioning certificate on my wall.

I'm not sure his exact deployment date overseas but he was there through the 1st half of 1919 with the Army of Occupation.
