World War I Veterans

cpinfrance1916smMy Great-Grandpa Clarence Weygant, a World War I veteran shown here (center) with his chef whites on. He was a cook but I know he saw combat as well. I am still gathering information on him. I have learned from my Uncle that Clarence was kicked out of school before he was 18 for being what was described as, “incorrigible,” and that he lost himself for awhile but decided to sign up as a dough boy and went to France. Just thought I’d share the picture!

    And lets not forget all the other boys who fought for their country – including my grandfather Otto Davids, 199th RIR Imperial German Army, and his brother Paul, who survived 4 years in the Western Front.
