Ed Bizek

ED BIZEK, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bizek, living near this city, where he has grown to manhood, having now reached his twenty-third birthday, was called in the draft of February 23 of this year, being one of the eight young men from this township called in the draft of that date, all of whom were honored by a public meeting given in the Fern Theatre in this city before their departure for Anamosa, from where he was sent to Camp Dodge to begin the training preparatory to going
overseas to fight the battles of his beloved country. Only a short time was spent at the Iowa camp, when he was transferred to a Texas camp. It was here that he received the most of his training, after which he was ordered to one of the embarkation camps in the east and sent overseas. The voyage across the ocean was made without any mishaps and only a short time elapsed after arriving in the foreign country before he was given the opportunity of facing the enemy. Although he has not been in France very long he has seen some of the real heavy fighting which occurred during the closing days. The mother anxiously awaits some word from him now that the war is over.
