Harold Miner

Becky Dirks Haugsted provided the images and Janet A. Brandt transcribed the text.

Private Harold Miner was killed in action on the battlefield in France, Oct. 14, 1918. He was a member of the Machine Gun Co., 168th Infantry, Rainbow division. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Miner of Olin. Harold was one of the first to offer his services to his loved land, enlisting at his home town of Olin, April 7, 1917, and left with the first contingent. Harold Miner was a genial, generous young man and was a favorite among the young people of his community. When the official news of his death arrived a short time after his death there were appropriate memorial services held at Olin Opera House. He is survived by his parents and their remaining family and by a large circle of friends who will long cherish the memory of one who willingly gave his life that we might enjoy the blessings of universal peace and liberty.
