Uncle Sam

Kenneth Richard Close (Holmes) (1897) was born in Austinburg, Ohio, the son of Frank Grant Close (Holmes) (1869) and Alma Sloat. Technically he’s not a Close because his father was the son of William Holmes, and his grandmother later remarried into the Close family where they adopted the surname.

He was drafted into the US Armed Forces in 1942 at Dade County, Florida.
