Roll of Honor of Bedford Boys in the U. S. Service

The Public Safety committee acting as a committee on permanent records earnestly requests any person noticing any error or omission in this list, kindly to notify George R. Blinn, chairman.

There will be a card catalogue later for all relatives and friends of our boys in the service, to consult, and it is hoped information will be sent of changes in address or appointments to different service.  A photograph is much desired for filing with each card.
