Update on Cpl. Uber, MIA in France

An up-coming event from the folks behind the World War One Centennial Commission.

Dear Friend,

In December, I shared the story of Corporal James L. Uber: a 29-year-old Pennsylvania boy killed in action on October 8, 1918 while serving in France as part of Company B, 112th Infantry Regiment, 28th Division National Army. His body, interned in a shallow grave near where he fell, was never recovered; his family was never given a last resting place to remember him and ease their grief.

I firmly believe that a man is only missing if he is forgotten. That’s why I founded Doughboy MIA, the only nonprofit in the world working to find our missing American boys from World War I and bringing them home. And you can help.

On Thursday, February 25th from 7:00 to 8:00 PM EST I’ll be presenting the latest findings in the Cpl. Uber case, introducing the Doughboy MIA search team, and briefing you on our progress so far. This is your chance to learn what we are doing to bring missing American WWI soldiers, Marines, and airmen a final resting place – and how you might be able to help.

You can access this Zoom briefing by signing up here.

Even if you can’t make it, but are interested in learning more, please sign up. We’ll be sending a full recording of the briefing to those who do, along with updates as we head to France later in the year.

Help remember James and the sacrifice he made for this country.

Sign up and get involved.
