Memorial Day 2017: David M. Prince


A member of the Goldsboro Rifles, 30th Infantry Division, "Old Hickory Division."  Went to France with the AEF and fought in the trenches.  He was hurt by poison gas, but survived and returned home to Goldsboro, North Carolina.

He lost his life a short time later saving a child from a flooded river and received the Carnegie Medal.

David M. Prince was my great uncle.
