2ND LT. HARRY H. OLMSTED VETERINARY COMPANY NO 1
M.O.T.C. Camp Greenleaf
I saw your great website when I was searching for more information about my Grandfather's WW1 service. I recently received part of his service file. My grandfather was a graduate of the college of veterinary medicine at Iowa State University in Ames. His Registration Card states he was a Veterinary Surgeon.
He enlisted April 8th, 1918 as a soldier in the active Medical Enlisted Reserve Corps. His service appears to have been from July 18, 1918 to February 2, 1919. Last rank was Second Lieutenant.
His assignments and Geographical Locations were: VET CO #1 Veterinary Corps Medical Department M.O.T.C. Camp Greenleaf
He was later discharged from Fort Ringgold, Texas. His name was Harry H. Olmsted. His US Army Service number was 982 144.
Could you please tell me if his name listed in the book, As You Were?
I think my grandfather (Harry Homer Olmsted) is the soldier on the left. The caption on the back says "Getting ready to have our pictures taken." Note: notice the garbage can with "Vet Hosp" written on it.
Here is a postcard that I inherited that was from Harry H Olmsted to his parents.
This is the initial document that was sent to me by the VA. They wouldn't give me anything else, as I was only a grand daughter. So I got my Aunt in Iowa to sign a request form and have the info sent to her.
