Ore Nelson Minniear served with the California National Guard (Company B, Seventh Infantry) when he and his comrades were mobilized to serve on the Mexican border. Following that, he entered into the US Army rising to the rank of Lieutenant. He served during World War I in the US with his most common story being about teaching soldiers how to fire a machine gun. He was discharged following the end of the war and returned to civilian life.
Thanks for your service grandfather.
