Baker, Earl (? - 8 AUG 1918)

Earl Baker, son of Mrs. G. S. Radley, residing seven miles south of this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), who enlisted in the U. S. Army at Minneapolis shortly after the declaration of war by our country, was killed in action on Thursday, Aug. 8, 1918, according to telegraphic reports received by his mother from the War Department on Wednesday evening.

Letters from the young man received by his mother indicated that he was in action with French and American troops at Soissons, and it is said that he has gone over the top many times.

Earl Baker enlisted in the infantry and after a short training here was transported to France, where he received additional training under the French army officers. Late letters from him give the idea that he was about to be promoted to the ranking of Corporal.
