attended the public school in that village, and the Wisconsin

Louis Laemle Store in this city. On April 17, 1917, he joined
Company A, 127th Infantry, Wisconsin National Guard, of
this city, to serve his country in the World War. He served a
period of two years and three months, half of which time was spent
in Winchester and Liverpool, England, in the army mail service. His
dispatch to England came about through quarantine regulations that
prevented a number of men from sailing for France with the
contingents to which they were attached, when they arrived at Camp
Merrit, New Jersey. Returning home from England, he resumed work as
a cheese maker at Loyal. Six months later he came to this city.
