When he was old enough to enlist, he went intot he Army and was sent to
Ft Lawson WA, then to Camp Humphry VA, to the Army Engineering school. From there they went to Fort Upton New Jersey, then
shipped to England. On the crossing he was to have said he got in an arguement with some men that
were throwing large boxes of Chocolate over board because they had gotten moldy. He lectured them
that was just the sugar crystalizing. They landed in England and did their preparations for the
crossing to France. While this was going on, an armistice was being negotiated. He landed on the
day of the Armistice. He was stationed in France and they mostly stayed in Garrison from my understanding.
