Hi Uncle Cy! I found your post when I did a search for grampa Follmer.
Re the original post about the Follmers:
Cyrus Brown Follmer, my grandfather, served in the Bucknell Ambulance corps in WWI and was on the front. After WWI, he became a US Diplomat serving in Tallinn Estonia, Lyons France, Paris France, Berlin Germany and later in Calgery Alberta and in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Cyrus also served brilliantly in WWII and attained the highest rank of a non-commissioned officer. Responsible for passing a bill on the naturalization of non-US citizens serving in the US Army, he spent most of his time at the front naturalizing men serving (and dying) for the US.
Cyrus had two children, Cyrus and Hester. I am the eldest child of Hester and Robert Kalin and now live and work in Europe. This is due in no small part to the fascination I had with grampa Follmer's stories about his time and service in Europe.
P.S. You are welcome to write to me as I would like to know more about the other members of the family.
