The Soldiers' Edition of the Oxford Mirror was transcribed by Janet Brandt.

Frank Nespor

FRANK NESPOR, the son of Joe Nespor, living on a farm about a mile and a half north of this city, although called in the draft from Wyoming Township, makes this city his home, and therefore was included with the other boys from this township when they were honored by a public meeting in this city before their departure. He, nevertheless, would not consider himself one of the boys from Oxford, due only to the fact that he registered at Wyoming. He was born September 26th, 1889, and was called into the service in the draft of July 25th, having reported at Anamosa at that time and was sent to Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga. His early training in the army consisted of the two months spent at this camp, for about the first of September he was transferred to Camp Merritt, N. J., from which place, after a brief rest, was sent overseas. His arrival in France was of too late a date to permit of his getting into the activities in the front line trenches, but nevertheless had he been afforded the opportunity, would have given a good account of himself. We regret very much that we are unable to reprint a picture of this soldier boys mother, who died several years ago.
