Edward A. Vochoska

EDWARD A. VOCHOSKA, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Vochoska, living near this city was born April 14th, 1892. The past number of years he has been employed elsewhere, visiting during that time at his parental
home occasionally. Last January his love for his country and his eagerness to do something beneficial prompted him to get into the service. With this view in mind he enlisted as a bricklayer at Clinton, Iowa, January 10, 1918. He reported at Des Moines and was immediately sent to Kelley Field, Texas, and a little later was transferred to San Antonio, Texas, where he remained for sometime. His next location was at Camp Sevier, Greenville, S. C., and from this place he was sent to Camp Mills, N. Y., from which place after a brief rest with his division boarded a transport for overseas. His particular line of work led the Government to send him to England, where he assisted in the construction of several aeroplane hangars. During the time he was engaged at this work he was given a furlough of which he took advantage to visit London and also Ireland. During his service for Uncle Sam he has seen a great deal of country and upon his return will without a doubt feel well repaid for the time he has given to his country. We have been unable to obtain a picture of his mother for this issue, a fact which we regret.
