Captain Harry

Several noted Missourians played significant roles in World War I, including Harry Truman. Historians have identified Truman’s military service in World War I as a turning point in his life and later political career. This presentation examines Truman’s decision to enter military service in 1917, tracks his command of the 129th field artillery as it traversed the fields of France during the war, and assesses the significance of his military service on his political career.
