1918: Samuel Culbertson enlists in the US Army

(From the New Albany Tribune, 12 October 1918)

S. A. Culbertson Enters Army As A Private In Rank

Former New Albany Man Now Financier,
Capitalist and Broker in Louisville Enlists In Service

Samuel A. Culbertson, former New Albany business man, now Capitalist and Broker and leading citizen of Louisville Kentucky has enlisted as a private in the American Army. Although beyond the age limit for active service, Mr. Culbertson was able to show that his strong physical condition warranted his sacrifice of business interest. He will report for duty at Camp Joseph E. Johnston, Jacksonville, Fla.
Mr. Culbertson already has two sons in the service and his enlistment to go as a private and learn the business of war from the ground up gives his family 100 percent.
