World War I Veterans and Armistice Day Remembered - John Dickinson Sherman

A collection of John Dickinson Sherman articles primarily in honor of World War I Veterans and Armistice Days from 1919 through to his death in 1926. I dedicate this page to the memory of:

Thurston Vern BAILEY

who was born 14 Apr 1895 in Carlton, Thayer Co, NE. "Bill" Bailey was a fine athlete for Hebron High School. He joined the Army on 9 Sep 1917. He was promoted to Sergeant in Company M, 355th Infantry, 89th Division, on 8 Jan 1918 and was entitled to wear two gold service chevrons. He saw action in the following campaigns:
8 Aug 1918 - 11 Aug 1918 - Lucey Sector, France.
12 Sep 1918 - 16 Sep 1918 - St Miheil Offensive.
17 Sep 1918 - 7 Oct 1918 - Euvezin, France.
19 Oct - 1918 - 11 Nov 1918 - Meuse - Argonne Offensive.
Upon returning home from the war he was plagued by the effects of poisonous gas that he was exposed to and was placed in a medical facility where he lived until his death, 12 Sep 1986, in Gillette, Campbell Co, WY.

Senators Urge New Look At Black Soldier's Heroics

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two Democratic senators say they have new evidence of a black soldier's heroics during World War I, and want him to be considered for the Medal of Honor.

Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley of Oregon sent a letter asking Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to consider the honor for Sgt. Henry Lincoln Johnson. They say they have a handwritten account from Johnson's partner on sentry duty when 20 Germans attacked the 369th Infantry, also known as the Harlem Hellfighters, on May 15, 1918.

The senators say U.S. officials for 90 years have said there were not enough U.S. sources to confirm his story.

Johnson was awarded the Purple Heart in 1996 and the Distinguished Service Cross in 2003. He received France's highest award for valor in 1918.
