(Transcribed by: Teri Moncelle Colglazier)

A sergeant in the regular army at the outbreak of the war, having served seven years, Frank Leslie Harrington of Bloomington, who was with Pershing on the Mexican border and also in the Philippines, was commissioned lieutenant and appointed artillery instructor at Chattanooga, Tenn; Fort Niagara, Camp Meade, Camp Gordon, and Camp Lee.

He was later promoted to captain and finally major, believed to be the only Bloomington boy who advanced from the ranks to such a high rank. He resigned his commission after peace was declared.
