Bobbie, WWI army records were destroyed as a result of a fire at the archive facility in 1973 St. Louis. If I have the right Anton, the 1930 census indicates he was both naturalized and a WWI vet. Serving in the military did not guarantee naturalization. It was a two step process. Having served may have shortened the waiting period between the processes. Dick
