LOOKING FOR FAMILIES OF LEGIONNAIRES
One of the goals of the celebration is to honor the families of those Cleveland-area Czechs and Slovaks
who fought as WWI Legionnaires in the French army for the liberation and freedom of the new nation.
The Centennial Committee is interested in hearing from any members of the Legionnaire families willing
to share pictures, letters, mementos, or uniform items, or who are willing simply to be honored or join in
the celebration of the heroic sacrifices of these brave volunteers. Please contact Carolyn Huber at (440)
243-1195 if you are a family member of one of the Legionnaires and are interested in more information.
