Story of Service


My grandfather was the first of many who listened, from his hometown of Doe Run Mo. Who went from Private First Class in 1918, came to sergeant.

His daughter was my mother, Leora Zoleman Simon. She got a lot of items from his picture when it hung in living room wall for many years, where his eyes were following every where you would go.

My grandfather had pictures of his company L 138 th infantrymen, where he served in the war with, where they all on a ship called Missanabie, going to Saint-Nazaire France, 1918.  I am very proud of my grandfather, wish I had got to know him.
