star Ilion Men Serving Uncle Sam in the Great War star

This is a composite of two listings of active-duty servicemen from Ilion in August and December 1917. Most the men on the December listing were listed during August, and less than a handful of those listed during the summer weren't on the December listing. Ilion's Honor Roll was intermittently published in the Ilion Citizen newspaper starting in the spring of 1917. The original crammed-together presentation of names was haphazard as to placement of commas and semi-colons, so several of the service placements and locations might be incorrectly assigned in the transcribing. If you have information that you'd like to share about any of the men listed, please contact the site coordinators.
