“The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Thomas H. Farnsworth, First Lieutenant (Air Service), U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Thiaucourt, France, September 13, 1918.

After being badly wounded Lieutenant Farnsworth shot down an enemy plane and made a perfect landing. His first thoughts upon landing were for his observer, who had been thrown from his plane during the action. Lieutenant Farnsworth died shortly after being taken to the aid station.”

“The Eastern High School Alumni flagstaff commemorates seven former Eastern High students who were killed in the Spanish-American War and World War I. Paid for by alumni of the school, the flagstaff stands before the school's main entrance. It was in place when the school moved to this then-new building on March 1, 1923.” — WW 1 Centennial Commission.
