Frank N. Lasack

FRANK N. LASACK, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Vince Lasack, was born on the farm near this city February 1st, 1897, where he has made his home continuously until being called into the service of his country September 4th, 1918, at the age of 21 years. He was one of the boys who were honored with a program in this city on Labor Day in connection with the Firemen’s Patriotic Labor Day Celebration. From Anamosa he was sent directly to Camp Dodge, where he was stationed during the time of the serious epidemic of Spanish Influenza at that camp. He remained here until November 8th, three days before the armistice was signed, when he was transferred to Camp Forest, Georgia, where he is at the present
time. No doubt he will be returned to Camp Dodge to be mustered out or will be given his discharge from the southern camp. His career as a soldier, although of very short duration was marked with rapid progress along the line of mastering the army tactics, and if the war had continued he would soon have been overseas, where he would have given a good account of himself. The mother, although she willingly let her son go when he was called, rejoices that he may soon be returned to the home where he has been greatly missed.
