Chester and Gertrude (At War)

It happens every day. A relative dies and family members receive the items of that person's life. One person gets the china, another some furniture. For Posey County, Indiana resident Nancy Hasting, it was a box of letters.

The story that began in 1918 ended a century later with a historic action by the U.S. Army's First Infantry Division Memorial Association.

Here is an update to a story we've been following for several years.  Evansville native Chester Schulz was killed in action on November, 7, 1918, just four days before the end of World War One.

Because of the chaos of the war and poor record-keeping, Chester Schulz's name was omitted from a monument to the soldiers who died in the last days of the war in northern France.  Now, he may finally be recognized.
