In 1917, the United States went to war. With the Great War in Europe raging, the young men and women of America stepped forward to take up the fight for the cause of freedom. World War I was also known as “The War to End All Wars” because there had been so much savage destruction and such a loss of lives.
Of the hundreds of young Collin County Freedom Fighters who would leave their homes in North Texas, seventy-one swore the oath of allegiance, donned the uniform; yet, never came home after World War I. These are their stories.
