The story of Corporal Guy Edington and the US Army Coast Artillery Corps and Ordnance Department in World War I.
I named this site "Remembering the sounds of my grandfathers footsteps" because as a young boy when grandpa and I would walk down to Fred Meyer's grocery store to get something for grandma, the leather soles of his shoes would make a cracking sound as he stepped on small stones on the concrete sidewalk. I always would walk behind him trying to step exactly where he stepped thinking that someday I might be just like him. This site is dedicated to all the men and women who served in WWI. They gave the best years of their lives and some paid with their lives, so that we could live in a Free Country. It is our duty not to forget what they paid for. Now that their is only one WWI veteran known still living, we the generations that follow take up this duty not to let their stories fade away into forgotten history, but keep it a living history for the generations who will follow us. This is the History of one WWI Veteran My Grandfather Cpl. Guy J. Edington and the US Army Coast Artillery Corps , US Army Ordnance Department and the US Navy who took them over and brought them back again.
