As the only son in his family, Harry wasn’t conscripted for service in America’s troops for WWI. When Truman rejoined the Guard, his men elected Harry an officer and he became First Lieutenant of his battery. Before being sent to France, Truman helped run a camp canteen at Fort Sill, where he had been sent for training! Can you imagine our beloved Harry behind the counter working as a clerk? We sure can!
