Looking for info Glenn R Madole, born in 1889 in Leroy Michigan.He joined the Army in January 1908 and served with the Signal Corps, although he may have also served with the 13th Cavalry (his first choice of assignment).He was probably discharged in January 1911 at Fort Sam Houston Texas.(There seems to be a clerical error in the record.Otherwise, he was discharged the day before he enlisted and would not have been in the Army in 1910.)
On 2 March 1910, at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, Army Lieutenant Benjamin Foulois made the world’s first military flight in an heavier-than-air craft.On the ground, 1LT Foulois was supported by a small group of relatively unknown enlisted men who appear in the few pictures from the time around the event.The soldier listed above was one of these men.
The Fort Sam Houston Museum is trying to put names to images and are looking for pictures of these men.Is this soldier a member of your family?Do you have a picture of him, or stories to tell about his involvement in this event, or his other military service?
If so, please contact Jackie Davis, either through this forum (I can’t access it at work), or better, at firstname.lastname@example.org
