Little Diddies about WWI War boys


Note: These little short biographical pieces relating to local (Waveland/Ladoga/Parke County/Russellville ...) boys are NOT in any particular order, so you might want to glance down (I have capped the last name) and/or do a control - f - (find) and type in the name you are searching to see if it is here). Good luck - just found one about my grandfather (a special road builder) that I had NO idea he had done !! kbz
