Jerry A. Roubinek

JERRY A. ROUBINEK, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Roubinek, was born in this city October 27th, 1891. He attended the local public schools from which he graduated with the class of 1908. A few years ago he accepted a position as inspector for Swift & Co., of Clinton, Iowa, where he worked for a number of years. He resigned this place to accept a position with the C. M. & St. P. Railway Co., to do clerical work in their offices at Monticello. It was here that he received his call from the Government April 25th, of this year. He reported at Anamosa and was sent to Camp Dodge, where he remained only for a short time and was then transferred to Camp Travis, Texas, from which
place he was sent to Camp Mills, N. Y., and boarded a transport for overseas June 17th, only two months after entering the service. With Co. H, 357th Infantry, of which he was a member, he was in the front line trenches for fifteen consecutive days and upon the sixteenth day when going “over the top,” was severely wounded, this occurring September 22. He was immediately taken to a hospital where he was confined for two months and was then transferred to an American Base hospital, and soon found himself enroute for the United States. He arrived in New York November 24th, and was sent to an embarkation hospital in Hoboken, N. J. From there he was sent to Camp Dodge December 10th, where he will receive his discharge, and the fond mother is expecting him home daily.
