He completed the course about three years ago, and received his lieutenant’s commission. Not desiring to continue in the service since the war is over, he was granted an honorable discharge. He left a fine position with one of the leading law firms in Milwaukee when he entered the army, but he has not determined upon his plans for the future.

He is a young man of fine legal ability and he has also had a broad experience both within and without his profession. Wherever he may decide to locate, he will do well. – Black River Falls Journal
