Military Monday - Lester Kuehl

Lester Kuehl was the son of John Kuehl and Dora Hermann. He was killed in action in France in 1944 and was originally interred in the military cemetery at LeChene-Guerin, France. Lester was finally brought home to Kewaskum, WI more than 4 years after his death in 1948. He is my mother-in-law's uncle. She vividly remembers being at the funeral in 1948 and the honor guard at the funeral firing their volleys in honor of her Uncle Lester. It was a sad day and the gun shots frightened her. She was 9 years old at the time of the funeral.

Rest in peace and thank you for serving our country, Uncle Lester. You should have been with us much longer than you were. All gave some, some gave all.
