World War I honor roll:

Added the names of Ralph Leslie Miller and Gordon Ralph Hammond.

Corrected the following names: Lawrence Eugene Grimes to Clarence Eugene Grimes, Cletus S. Meyers to Cletus S. Myers, Jesse H. Smith to Jesse E. Smith, and Forrest Johnston Young to Forrest Johnson Young.
    — Submitted March 22, 2014, by Duane Hall of Abilene, Texas.

2. Jesse H. Smith
The middle initial for Jesse Smith is incorrect on the WWI Honor Roll at the Milford Town Hall. It is not "E." The marker at the Milford Public Library down the street has the correct name: Jesse H. Smith. That is how his name appears in the Federal Censuses for both 1900 and 1910, and on his grave marker. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
