LEFOY BROWER Private U.S. ARMY 127th Infantry Regiment, 32nd Div, WWI.

Private Brower grew up in the farm country of Eastern Idaho, the descendant of Mormon Pioneers. In 1917 he was drafted into the United States Army at the time America entered World War I, or "The Great War" as it was then called. He was mustered for service in Western Europe the following year.

On September 26, 1918, Gen. John J. Pershing led over 600,000 American troops in an attack on German lines in an offensive known as the Battle of Argonne Forest. Pvt. Brower was killed in action on October 9, 1918.

By early November, Pershing's troops had broken through German defenses, and opened a hold on the eastern flank of the German lines. Unable to hold their position or supply reinforcements, Germany asked for an armistice. The Great War came to an end on November 11, 1918 just a month after Pvt. Brower's death.

He was interred at the at the Muese-Argonne American Cemetery near Romagne, France with more than 14,000 of his comrades in arms.
