To help preserve my family’s legacy and to share history that, until now, has only been available to family, I’m posting entries from my great grandfather’s World War I journal 98 years to the day from his first entry on February 8, 1918 to his final entry on May 1, 1918. These posts include both a picture of each journal entry in my great grandfather’s own hand as well as a printed transcript for ease of reading.
