My first cousin three times removed Ferdinand Constand Schneider was killed in action 98 years ago today, on 15 July 1918, at the Battle of Château-Thierry, World War I. He was the son of a German immigrant (my 2nd-great-grandfather's brother), and he died fighting against the Germans.

I wanted to share this family photo of Ferdinand Schneider with the community.

Some gave all. We should not forget these young men who gave up everything for our future.

Thank you so much, Elisabeth. This man did contribute. Many of us don't in that particular way. Many kinds of honor flow through our lives. This one is verifiable.
