The WWI Experiences of Corporal John George Rakers

With no living veterans from "The Great War," keeping the history alive is an important reminder of the sacrifices made by the approximate 9.7 million military deaths during the War. Mark Armato, author of "Grandpa's War," grew up listening to his grandfather's engaging tales. Determined to preserve those stories, Armato shares one man's  experiences in World War I with narratives full of humor, sadness, rebellion, and faith. A light brunch will be served
