Hi Friend,

One year ago, 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 E, 112th Infantry Regiment, 28th Division National Army. His body, interned in a shallow grave where he fell, was never recovered; his family was never given a last resting place to remember him and ease their grief.

But today, I am writing with some good news.

Cpl. James Uber

On Thursday, January 27th from 8:00 to 9:00 PM EST– I’ll be presenting the latest findings in the Cpl. Uber case, a detailed look at a year-long investigation and our journey onto the battlefields of France to recover one of our brave young American boys. This is your chance to learn what we are doing to give more of these missing soldiers, sailors, 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.

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 WWI and bringing them home. And you can help.

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 back to France later in the year for more search and recovery operations.

Help remember James and the sacrifice he made for this country. Sign up and get involved.
