Currently on exhibit at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center we have WWI uniforms, a gas mask, knapsack, stretcher, and several WWI related posters in remembrance of the World War I centennial (2014-2018). One of the uniforms on exhibit was worn by Henry Frevert and the other was worn by Samuel Eurich, who served as an ambulance driver. Also on exhibit is a book entitled, “Nevada’s Golden Stars,” published 1924, which is a memorial volume designed as a gift from the State of Nevada to the relatives of those Nevada Heroes who died in the World War. Three names in the book are of young men who entered service in Douglas County and subsequently lost their lives: Carmelo Bloisi, Clarence Frevert, and Earl Franklin Jepsen.
Douglas County Historical Society updated their profile picture.
