Everyone has a story – it just needs to be told.
On April 6, 1917, the United States entered World War I. In a rural farming community in Western New York, ninety-nine men would answer the call.
Sacrifices were made both on the battlefield and at home. Uncovered in the Honor Roll is a story long forgotten of the mothers whose sons were killed on the battlefields in France.
Not included on the Honor Roll but not forgotten, men women from Parma answered the call during World War I and served in our armed forces. At home, civilians volunteered to support the efforts abroad.
