Of course, many other Choctaw County boys joined the service and there were others that trained @ Camp Bowie and served with the 142nd in France.....we're interested in those soldiers also.
Such as, in the last few days we learned that 'Corbertt Binifield and Elmer G. Keith both soldiers from Caddo, Oklahoma were killed in France, remains were found side by side and today their remains are buried in Caddo just the same!!!!
Author is looking for stories and photographs of these brave soldiers to be able to dedicate the book to them!!!!
