Making a List of DeKalb Residents Serving in Armed Forces
From the November 15, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
"The children of the upper grades in the five elementary schools of DeKalb are starting their canvass of the city in an effort to learn the names and addresses of all DeKalb men and women who are serving in the armed forces of the United States.
"The children have been provided with forms which are to be filled out by members of families in homes where members are serving in the armed forces. The children are to contact homes in their neighborhoods in an effort to secure all the names."
