Johnstown Has Men in Nearly Every Branch of Service –
One Girl Enrolled.

The anniversary of the entrance of the United States into the war for the making of the world safe for democracy, finds two hundred and sixteen of Johnstown’s sons in the nation’s service, and one girl who has taken up Red Cross work abroad.

Johnstown has also responded nobly to all patriotic movements which have taken place in connection with the war during the past year. In addition to having representatives in nearly every branch of army and navy work, the citizens have showed they are behind the boys who are to go "over there" by giving of their time and money for the various agencies which are part and parcel of this great movement to make this world a safe and better place in which to live.

A glance at the list of names of boys in service should act as an incentive to spend Johnstown’s quota for the next Liberty Loan, so that this city will be among the first to earn the honor flag offered by the government. The following list is the eighth bulletin issued by the Home Service Section of the Johnstown chapter, American Red Cross and any corrections or additions should be reported to H. B. Northrup, chairman of the section.
