Letters of a WWI Veteran

A Veterans Day Remembrance: Letters of a WWI Veteran

Sharing My Life’s Experiences is a story about WWI draftee, John W. Deno of Kaukauna, Wisconsin. Listen to some of the letters read by his grandson, Dale Deno. These letters help piece together a story of sacrifice, boredom, loneliness, death, despair and suffering as the German Army tried to kill him. Learn how almost a hundred years after the War had ended how his grandfather was honored with the Silver Star for gallantry in action in the Battle of Meuse-Argonne.
