One hundred years ago today, July 1, 1918, Jay was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. This less than two weeks since the last promotion. Seems Sergeant Shetler was becoming a pretty good soldier.
This photo shows the promotion written on July 1 in Unit A’s Daily Record Unit book:

It’s amazing to have all these documents…
Some have been in the family, others I was able to get from the National Archives and other government agencies. Glad to have them!
