|George Amunds - about 1918|
On Friday, I posted pictures of my Great-Uncle Charlie who was in the army during WWI and the Navy during WWII. My brother sent me a link to the Roster of the Rainbow Division and Charlie was listed as being in the 149th Machine Gun Battalion (4th Pa. Infantry) in Company L. Charles W. Giddens was listed on page 62. Many of the men in Uncle Charlie's company were from his hometown of Phillipsburg, New Jersey or nearby Easton, Pennsylvania.
Well, while looking at the names of men in his company, I noticed a George Amunds on page 61 listed as private from Brooklyn, New York. There is a photo of George Amunds in my grandmother's photo album. It was with the army pictures of Uncle Charlie, but George was not in uniform so I did not make the connection. George was not family, but must have been Uncle Charlie's friend.
Now that George is posted on my blog, maybe one of his descendants will happily find his picture.
