Harold Klahn

HAROLD KLAHN, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Klahn, was born November 4, 1896, having reached his twenty-second birthday the 4th of last month. He was raised on the farm near this city and attended the local
high school, from which he graduated with the class of 1914. He has always wanted to get into the service since the time that this country was participated into the war but the work on the farm kept him from enlisting. He was called in the draft of September 5th, and upon reporting at Anamosa with the other boys from this township, was sent to Camp Dodge. This training was just begun at this place and in two weeks time he was transferred to Camp Pike, Arkansas. He was still located at this camp when the armistice was signed and no doubt will be mustered out of the service from there. We are unable to print a picture of the mother, she having passed away over fourteen years ago. The father of this young man was killed by a vicious bull about three years ago.
