Raymond DeHond, WWI soldier from Williamson, NY
April 6, 1917 – 100 years ago – United States joins WWI. Raymond DeHond was one of 62 boys from Wayne County and the surrounding area that got on a troop train from Palmyra on May 25, 1918 to serve in the military during WWI. Ray kept a diary of his experience in the war and had many photographs. Ray’s grandson, Michael Harland, found Ray’s diary a couple of years ago and transcribed the diary into a document which includes Ray’s photographs and Michael’s research. Michael will give a slide presentation which will tell Ray’s experience (in photographs); leaving Williamson, basic training at Camp Dix, transit through England, stationed in France, occupation of Germany, and returning home. Come and enjoy some interesting photographs and stories of a local boy named Ray DeHond. Clyde Kuttruff of West Walworth left on the same troop train as Ray.
