Julius Jay Wagner grew up on a farm in Monroe County and was drafted into the war in April of 1918. He trained at both Camp Custer near Battle Creek and Camp Humphreys near Washington D.C. before being sent to France. Julius served in the artillery and since he grew up on a farm he was given the task of handling teams of horses pulling wagons. He served in major battles at the Marbach Defensive, St. Michiel, and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.
