About 5 years ago I began to research World War I and think about whether there was a story I wanted to tell. A lot of that came through the family stories my Aunt Catherine told me about John Walter Cobb - the uncle that had died in the Great War and was buried in a US cemetery in France.
His mother went to France on a Gold Star Pilgrimage in 1930 to visit his grave.
I considered working on a story for John Walter but then I became intrigued by continuing my pursuit of women who served in the US military in France during WWI.
Walter died in November 1918 and I intend to have more of a story about him ad his mother by then.
Its an important story for me and it will wrap up some history for our family. That's important to me.
