Story of Service

 

Ruben Hudlow 77th Div 308th Inf Co A Survivor of "Lost Battalion." Joined Army and served with lifelong friend Irvin Pischner. I knew them both.

 

Joined in June 1918 with friend Irvin G. Pischner. Each assigned to 77th Div 308 Inf Co M and Co A respectively. Ruby Hudlow survivor of "Lost Battalion." I knew them both in my youth.

Ruben Hudlow and Irvin G. Pischner were WWI Veterans.  They were U.S. Army soldiers assigned to the 77th DIvision - 308th Infantry, Companies M and A, respectively. I knew them both -- Irvin, my dad, and Ruben, his friend, a survivor of the "Lost Battalion."

In my youth, during my time with them, some two decades after their Army discharge, I now recall very little discussion of the "forgotten war." My dad told few stories. Ruby only explained that his missing finger resulted from a wartime gunshot. I wish that I would have been more inquisitive.
