  • Notes 
    • - Rogers enlisted in the US Army 15 Feb 1918 at Ft. Screven, Georgia. He served overseas May 8, 1918 - March 20, 1919. He was honorably discharged on demobilization, 3 Apr 1919. Rogers received a Victory Medal for his service overseas. Two operations in which he was involved: St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne. Rogers was a private in Company B, 37th Engineers, 1st Army Corps, Defensive Sector. Grandpa Asa remembers Walter often singing French songs when he visited.

      - Walter seemed to be a sort of hobo. He would be gone from "home" (Washington County, Georgia) for 3 or 4 years, then return for a 2 - 3 month visit. He would help the sharecropper Logue family pick cotton. His nephew Luther would tease Walter about how full (only 1/2) his sack was when he dumped it.

      - Grandpa Asa also remembers Walter as a pipe smoker.

      - From Pa's Memoirs:
      "...Uncle Walter..., from what I can hear he was a Red Neck if there has every been one, I think he had been married two or three times -- done said and went were he wonted too, when he wanted too. You would look dow the road one day and you would see him comming, he might stay three months or it could be six. He called Pop Dick, he smoked a crooked stem pipe, he served in World War One, and was all the time singing songs in French. I guess he learned more of it than I did, but when he left, it might be two years befour you seen, or herd from him agan."
