Howard, Glenn (1 MAY 1896 - 1 AUG 1918)

On Sunday funeral services were held at the Armory for two young soldiers who laid down their lives for their country on a battle field in France, Glenn Howard and Fred Switzenberg, whose bodies arrived from overseas last week. There was a very large attendance of friends and sympathizers of the bereaved families. The American Legion turned out to do military honors to their fallen comrades. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Geo. W. Longenecker.

Glenn Howard, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Howard, was born in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. May 1, 1896. He grew to manhood here. He enlisted with Co. A. and went to the Mexican border. On returning he went to St. Paul where his parents reside and for a time was street car conductor. When the war broke out in April 1917 he again entered the service. On Aug. 1, 1918 he fell in battle near Chateau Thiery, France. He was a brave and efficient soldier, prompt in performing his duties and died bravely.
