Major Albert N. Buescher
McLean County, Illinois

[McLean County, Illinois, in the World War, 1917-1918; by Edward E. Pierson & Jacob Louis Hasbrouck c 1921]
(Transcribed by: Teri Moncelle Colglazier)

Major Albert N. Buescher, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Buescher of North Lee street in Bloomington, and before the war was employed at the Paul F. Beich Co.

He received, his military training at Fort Benjamin Harrison, where he was commissioned captain. After remaining there as instructor for a time, he was sent to France with the 331st infantry, where he attained the rank of major.

After the armistice he secured his discharge and returned to civil life in an Ohio city.

The experiences of army life in France had for Major Buescher somewhat of a different appeal from that of many other soldiers, because of his education permitting him to appreciate his surroundings in all their bearings aside from their strictly military aspects.
