Over There: Abraham Krotoshinsky

Before the war, the "Savior of the Lost Battalion" was still an immigrant barber in the Bronx. Krotoshinsky came to New York from Płock, part of the Russian Empire in Poland. He'd left there specifically to escape military service. His attitude toward military service changed drastically in his adopted country.

Over There: Joseph Linett

Joseph Linett left Ukraine for the United States. He was inducted into the Medical Corps and served in France as doctor. While overseas, he tragically lost his wife back home.
