We remember.

From the May 12, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Bodies of Soldiers Arrive.
The body of Robert O’Howell, a Nodaway County soldier, who died overseas, will arrive in New York tomorrow, according to a story in the Barnard Bulletin and will later be sent to Barnard for burial. It is said that the bodies of Richard Armstrong and Russell Laughlin will also arrive on the same ship.

The services for Robert O’Howell will probably be in charge of the James Edward Gray Post of the American Legion and of the Woodmen camp of Guilford of which he was a member.

Walter Bradley of Elmo is another one of Nodaway county’s soldiers whose body is reported to have arrived in New York some weeks ago, and which will be interred by the Veterans of Foreign Wars with an appropriate military honors when it arrives at Elmo. Walter Bradley was killed at Chateau Thierry on July 15, 1918. He will be buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery at Elmo by the side of his father, Leonard Bradley.

Robert O’Howell died of pneumonia on October 17, 1918, in France. He was 22 years old when he entered service. — Maryville Tribune.
