Kent Dunlap Hagler
World War I
Mr. Hagler served in the U.S. Army Ambulance Service from June 20, 1917 until May 3, 1919, when the war ended. He then enrolled in chemistry at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. He unexpectedly died in Paris. He had been wounded and gassed in service, but recovered. It is believed Mr. Hagler’s death was ultimately caused by his injuries and gassing experienced in his military service. His body was returned to the U.S., and he is buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois; Abbey Mausoleum, R Corr, D, 4. He earned the Croix de guerre and Field Service Medal with citations.
