Nov. 27, 1917, at Toledo, Ohio, he enlisted in the army, and was sent to Camp Meigs, Washington, D.C. Jan. 10, 1918, he sailed on the Olympic for Liverpool, England.

He drove trucks loaded with ammunition and food to the front lines, and was attached to Provisional Co. No.4, R. U. No. 302, Motor Transport Corps. His first furlough of four days came in February, 1919. He spent this brief rest period going to Mentone in southern France, and en route visited Italy, the Alps, and several of the most prominent cities.
Much has been written of the hardships of the truck drivers; they worked day and night, and encountered many dangers; a few days vacation was indeed a treat not often given, for the success of the army depended upon having the front lines well provisioned with both food and ammunition.
