EDWARD G. LASACK, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Lasack, was born in this city September 12th, 1896, where he grew to manhood and attended the local public schools, from which he graduated in the year 1914. A year later he went to Cedar Rapids, where he attended Business College and after finishing the course secured employment with the New England Factory, of Cedar Rapids, which position he held for almost a year. In January, 1917, he took the civil service examination for a government position at Washington, which he passed and accepted, going to the Capital City in a short time. It was here that he enlisted July 22nd, in the fifth Naval District for general service in the U. S.
Naval Reserve Force for a period of four years, as landsman electrician. He was then detailed for special services at the executive office of the U. S. Naval Operating Base, at Hampton Roads, Va., where he is located at the present time. He was called into the service after enlisting September 24th and arrived at Hampton Roads the 27th, of that month. Twenty-four days were spent in the detention camp. He was assigned to the executive office on October 25th. Ed is one of the Oxford boys, of whom the parents can well be proud. He has achieved success. His desire to get into the service of his country and his enlistment is only another round in the ladder to future successes.
