Corporal Edward J. Schranz

Corporal Edward J. Schranz, Company H, 311th Infantry served overseas from May 1918 to May 1919 and kept this diary the entire time. Beyond the daily entries are names and addresses of people with whom he served because he likely wanted to be able to contact them after the war. The last two pages offer an interesting list of the “General Orders to Soldiers about to be Discharged from the Service.”   

Item on loan from Kirk Schranz, grandson of Edward J. Schranz.
