Quick back story; I am transcribing my 3xGreat Uncle WWI journal. ------ “We are always ready; but in the meantime its dig, and work, and being careful, and trust to chance at times” -- Carl Farnsworth, July 18th, 1918. Carl Farnsworth was a simple and humble man in a Great War. Though his time in battle was short, it was no less important. From the farms of Nebraska to the forest of France, in Carl’s own words, here is his story. One of the many brave but forgotten souls of WWI.
