Description

The Post, chartered October 14, 1919, was originally named for Corporal Robert Gerhardt Krause (1888-1918), who died of wounds in the Argonne, France, October 10, 1918.

Krause received his military training at Camp Grant (Rockford, Illinois), Camp Greene (Charlotte, North Carolina), and Camp Mills (Long Island, NY). He was home on a furlough for a few days during the Christmas holidays in 1917.

In May, he left the United States for overseas as a Corporal in Company L, 58th Infantry, 4th Division. In July he had been slightly wounded by shrapnel, spending three weeks in a hospital before returning to his company and to the firing line when he was wounded a second time causing his death.

He is interred at Seymour Cemetery.
