Ellis Christensen enlisted in the United States Army in 1917 and served in Company L. Interviewed by Steven Hanschu on November 9, 1977, Christensen talked about military experiences in World War I. Christensen also served in World War II and the Korean War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the community institutions receiving grants who also used the grant funds to digitize and transcribe previously recorded interviews from World War I. The transcript of the interview is presented here; the original audio copy of the interview is available through the Emporia State University (Flint Hills) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
