  • Notes 
    • WWI - Elbert served in a Machine Gun Company with the 103'd Infantry Regiment of the American Expeditionary Forces in France during WW1. In a letter dated Aug 5, 1918 from a field hospital, Elbert wrote that "Somewhere in France" during a machine gun charge into the lines: "......going out into that storm of flying iron with a heavy tripod in one hand and a case of ammunition in the other", while "wiggling thru the wheat, I got a bullet thru my little finger". Later in November, he was hospitalized again, this time in a "gas hospital" in Vichy, France after "a gas shell burst a few yards from me". He related: "The next morning I became acutely sick at my stomach and my eyes began to smart.....and hurt so I could hardly keep them open". "I never had such agony before" With his eyes swollen shut, he experienced the further effects of the gas - "my throat and lungs, which feel burnt. It's like a bery bad cold. Eyes run, nose run, sort throat, awful cough, etc. etc" Elbert received a small military disability check for the remainder of his life due to the negative effects of that noxious gas.
