Hates Him, Owen

Owen Hates Him, Cheyenne River Sioux.  Promise, South Dakota. Ward of the government. Enlisted April 21, 1917 in Pierre, South Dakota.


While taking active part in the battle at Chateau Thierry latter part of July 1918 I was gassed and just barely escaped, this world war in which I took part is something that will be in my memory forever, I know I might get killed yet I know that I ought to do something for my country as we Indian’s are the real American’s. so I enlisted, and seen some hard times yet I am glad I have done my duty and I got back safely home, I cannot relate my whole experience there but do hope this be sufficient.
