About U.S. Army Corporal Fred James Grant:

Born January 14, 1896 in Ogden, Utah
Died November 10, 1918 – Killed in action at Dun-sur-Meuse, France.

CPL Fred J. Grant died a heroes death just twelve hours before the Armistice was signed ending the war on November 10, 1918. He was on a voluntary special assignment. Grant had on four previous occasions volunteered for special assignments taking up rifles and acting as infantry. It was on this fifth voluntary assignment he was killed. A friend of CPL Grant’s, named George Baugh, wrote the Grant family: “The night of the tenth of November was a bad night for us. We put a floating bridge over the Meuse River under heavy shell and machine gun fire. The Marines crossed and took a big hill. It was there that Fred Grant was killed. He was a Utah boy and a good friend of mine. I worked for his father on the O.L.&I. He was killed at twelve o’clock at midnight.” George Baugh then moved on to Berlin.

Fred Grant was first buried in an American military cemetery in France. In March 1921, his body was shipped to the U.S. It wasn’t until April 1921 that CPL Grant’s body arrived home in Ogden to be buried in a family plot in Mountain View Cemetery (now Leavitt’s Autorest) on 36th Street in Ogden.
