In 2012, Carrol Lundeen and his family donated a World War I footlocker. In 2016, when I started as curator, the footlocker was still locked.

That's so neat! Such a wonderful find for that historical society.

And I noticed that Walter's rank insignia patch is for a staff sergeant which means he was a senior enlisted in the 90th Aero Squadron, even though the sergeant's stripes carry the crossed flags of the Signal Corps. During WW1, the AEF's aircraft units "belonged" to the Army Signal Corps.

Fascinating!

Which Wright County is it? Iowa? Minnesota? Somewhere else?
