Monona County Iowa, WWI - The Great War

 

 

SPECIMEN LISTS OF IOWA MEN AND WOMEN LOST IN THE WORLD WAR
by Edgar R. Harlan

        Our institution set out to list and thus commemorate all Iowa men and women who died in uniform under the Stars and Stripes and its associated emblems in the World War.  Miss Martha A. Watson has been in charge of our World War division and has devoted her whole time and energy to the task.  Names of those who survived and returned to civil life will of course occur in the formal rosters of the state and in other publications of public and private character.

        The names of the Gold Star men of the World War which appear in this issue are from twenty counties in northwestern Iowa.

        While much careful study and effort has been given to compiling the names and data for this Honor Roll for all the counties in Iowa, we can not assert that they are in any county absolutely correct.  We have asked persons and organizations in all counties to assist us in this work. Some have given effective cooperation while others have been slow to respond.

        The Honor Roll is composed of the names of the Iowa men and women who died while actually in the service.  Many died from a direct cause of the war soon after they were discharged. It may seem that they should be named in the list.  If so, those too who died still later should be included.  Therefore we have made our lists to include only those who died before they were discharged.

        In arranging the names in counties, as we have done, we can not always be sure they are accurate, for many of them gave rural free delivery addresses that may take them into adjacent counties.

        Many Iowa men entered the United States service in other states or enlisted in the Canadian Army.  These may have no Iowa record except as they are reported to us by their families or friends.  We have included all these of whom we have learned in the Honor Roll.
