star Knights of Columbus Members in the Great War star

Herkimer County, NY

These men were members of the three Herkimer County Knights of Columbus councils who'd seen service in World War I. It wasn't stated if they were all members at the time of entering service, or if listings included veterans who had joined the organization after the war. What we do know is that they were all Roman Catholic. Source: The Knights of Columbus in Peace and War, by Maurice Francis Egan and John B. Kennedy, Volume II, Knights of Columbus: New Haven, Connecticut. Copyright 1920.

"Below, without any designation of rank - be they officers or enlisted men, is presented the roster of the Knights who served with their country's colors in the war. ... But whether in the trenches, on the seas, or in the camps at home, all did their duty.

It is a striking coincidence that the first American to fall in the war was a Knight of Columbus and that the last American to fall was also a Knight, and that the first man to win the Distinguished Service Cross was a Knight."
