Merritt Lamb served as an officer in the 125th Infantry during World War I. He was killed in action in France. The Rockford, Michigan American Legion Post 102 was named in his honor.

Merritt Lamb was born and raised in Rockford, Michigan and came to Muskegon in 1912. He was the founder of the Boy Scouts in Muskegon. He joined the army shortly after US involvement in World War I and rose to the rank of Captain. He was an intelligence officer in the 125th Regiment and was killed at Juvigny, France. I believe he was buried at Rockford. Hackley Library has a World War I scrapbook with lots about Capt. Lamb and the others from Muskegon in the great war.
