View Full Description

Ernest Muzzall enlisted in the Army in February 1918, and by the time he arrived in Europe, the Armistice was just weeks away. But there was work to be done in the post-war period – Muzzall was assigned to Army Veterinary Hospital #1, classifying and transporting horses used by artillery units. After just over a year of service, Muzzall returned to the United States and was discharged. But upon his return to civilian life, he felt a loss as he left the excitement and comradeship of military life behind.
