What perfect timing for me, Jacky!

I was about to post a question here about a very dicey profile I have just written.  It's dicey because I was not able to find even a single source for a single "fact" that is stated in it, so I put a big bold warning about that at the top, and plan to call this profile completed at this point.

The question is that the best information I have indicates that Jakob Löwenstein died in France during World War I.  He was German and father of 7 children, with the youngest only a few months old when he died, so I presume he was fighting in the German army.  I added the category for WW I KIA in France, but it just seems strange to be including someone from "the other side" in there.  Is it correct to do this?

Also, should he be a part of your project?

THANX!!!

Of course Gaile  The Great War project is for all that participated regardless of country.
THANX!!!  This is fantastic news for me - I'm going to slap your new template on the profile and let The Great War project try to find some real sources!  Now I can scratch 1 more off my list of about 400 remaining profiles in my "adopted gedcom"  that I haven't gotten to yet.  Jakob is all yours now!!!
You may want to PPP him because there are several people with the same name and similar birth years.  I went through a lot of confusion to sort out all the Jakob/Jacob Lowenstein/Loewenstein people that I found in online family trees.
