Hi,

In researching my grand uncle's service I have found this closest match.

Francis J Cahill
Residence: 552 E83 New York New York
Inducted LB 142 New York, NY April 29, 1918
> Place of birth: New York, NY
> Date of birth: 25, 11/12 yrs.
>
> Organizations served: 152 Dept Brig to June 9/18; Field Hospital Co
> 353 314 Sn Tn to Disch.
>
> Grade: PVT
>
> Engagements
>
> Wounds or Injuries recieved in action: none
>
> served overseas from June 28, 1918-May 24, 1919
>
> discharged June 2/1919


I would you like to know more about the units listed. Where did the serve, what was their role, engagements. Was Francis a pvt in a medical unit over seas? Whatdo the numbers and sn, tn mean?

family lore suggests the Francis was shell shocked. Everything about him is a mystery, so sorry for lack of info.

Thanks,

Stefan
