Floyd Hall

FLOYD HALL, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. L. M. Hall, of Lost Nation, was born at Monticello, Iowa, April 24, 1894, having reached his twenty-fourth birthday last April. A number of years ago the family moved to this
city, where the home was made and where he grew to manhood and attended the public schools. He enlisted in the Navy in May 1912, serving out the time of his enlistment. In March 1917 he was given an honorable discharge with the understanding that should war be declared, he would be subject to call. Immediately upon receiving his discharge he returned home but was here only about two weeks, when he was recalled, and willingly departed to do his part in helping to win the World War. During his service in the Navy, his willingness to learn, resulted in receiving several promotions from time to time. The mother has received a letter from him since the armistice was signed in which he stated that he was feeling fine. Mr. and Mrs. Hall moved to Lost Nation last spring, where the former was employed. Nevertheless we consider Floyd one of our boys and are pleased to present his picture herewith. He will be welcomed to our city upon his return just the same as the other local boys.
