No. 28, Fort Sheridan, Ill. Wounded October 27, 1918 at Spital-Bochens, Belgium. Transcriber's Note: The information provided here doesn’t add up. P. W. E. in this instance probably means Prisoner of War Enclosure. Ketelhut’s parent division arrived in the Brest area in mid-October 1918. But they were not sent to Belgium. I have been unable to find any place even called Spital-Bochens, Belgium. My research indicates that spital can mean hospital in some German-speaking areas, and Bochens is a small town in Germany northeast of Cologne. But Ketelhut couldn’t have been wounded in Belgium if he was guarding prisoners in Brest, France.

Krueger, Carl W. Enlisted.

Private Carl Krueger, who was injured in the battle of Chateau Thierry on July 18, arrived home on Sunday morning. He was granted a ten day furlough. The young man was one of the first Freeporters to go to the front. While serving his country he was injured, a shrapnel shell entering his lung after carrying away part of two ribs. He was returned a number of weeks ago and since that time has been convalescing in a base hospital at Camp Dodge, Des Moines, Iowa. The young man is making a rapid recovery but is still in a weakened condition as a result of his experience. The shrapnel which entered his body passed through the bodies of two other soldiers and killed them. An operation was held recently on Private Krueger and the shell removed, the same now being in his possession. (Contributed by Karen Fyock - dated December 24, 1918)
