Sentimental Sunday - Sgt. Henry Edward Dreher

Sgt. Henry Edward Dreher

A supply sergeant in World War I. Henry Edward was shipped by ocean voyager toward France for assignment. Unfortunately he died during the voyage from influenza. He was buried at sea.

There is a memorial marker for him at the Suresnes American Military Cemetery, just outside of Paris.

Known simply as "Edward", he was my Grandfather Dreher's older brother.
