Henry Bruce Killed In Battle

The Second Enterprise Young Man to Give His Life on the Battlefield

Word was received last evening by Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Bruce of the death of their son, Henry, on the battlefield of France during the later days of the severe fighting.

Henry went with the contingent of Wallowa county boys on June 24th from Enterprise and was advanced rapidly arriving in France in less than two months after leaving Enterprise. He was one of Wallowa’s finest young men and the county will cherish his memory as one who made the supreme sacrifice.

The parents have the heartfelt sympathy of all in their great sorrow.

Wallowa County Reporter Thursday November 21, 1918
