Lowe, Albert

Albert Lowe, Winnebago. Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Enlisted July 30, 1917 in Walthill, Nebraska.


During the battle of Meuse-Argonne on Sept. 29th I had a narrow escape. Many white men were killed around me while I was lying face down in no man’s land I was forced to remain motionless for many hours and finally at night took a chance on sliding back into the line.

Twice before this I lead men in no man’s land on our hands and knees and lead safely back into the trench.  I was appointed to do this because of the Indians keen sense of direction. This happens late at night. After the armistice was signed I was in Germany in the Army of Occupation on the Rhine.
