Be sure to read "The Naming of the St. Quentin Post", researched and presented by Post Historian Rob Smith this past Veterans' Day. It tells the story of two men from Ely, Joseph Dvorak and Charles Noska, who died near the city of St. Quentin, France in World War I. Smith does a wonderful job of taking us back in time and describing the conditions of the war the men experienced, as well as conditions back home. Other Ely area men who died in World War I were Joseph Filipi, Joseph F. Kriz, and Frank Moses, Jr. Read the story at St. Quentin Post website
