My grandfather was born in 1894 in Dayton Ohio. At the age of 20 he enlisted in the US Navy in 1914. After training he was promoted to engineman 2nd class and was stationed aboard the USS New Mexico during WW1. He received his honorable discharge in 1918 and entered the naval reserve. According to his discharge papers his monthly pay was $40.00 at the time of separation from active duty. He married, fathered 1 son, and entered the grocery business in Ohio. In 1932 his family moved to San Francisco for awhile and eventually resettled in Los Angeles, California. He went into the newspaper business until he retired. He died in 1970 at age 76. Thank you for your service to your country.
