🏫 Post 62 Humboldt, South Dakota

Post 62 of Humboldt, South Dakota, is named for war hero William H Crippen, who was the first soldier to die in the line of duty from Humboldt. William H Crippen, son of Mr. and Mrs. D W Crippen, was born at Bowen, Illinois, on January 28, 1888, and died on the battle line of duty on October 4, 1918.

William grew to young manhood in the state of his birth and when the family came west and settled in Nebraska, he accompanied them to the new home. Likewise, when nine years later, they came to Humboldt; he was still a part of the family. When the US entered the Great War, William was at Vermillion working. But, with the same spirit which sent thousands into the battle line, young Crippen–after a few days with the home folks–enlisted in the Marines and was soon in the trying experiences and tragedies which were to end, all too soon, his life and service.

The sorrowing parents have since received from the government the Victory Medal, which would have been the privilege of William to have worn and honored as a memorial of his service to his country. The Medal carries five bars as follows; Defensive Sector, Aisle-Manne, St Milhiel, Meuse-Argonne.

When the American Legion was organized at Humboldt, the Post was named The William H Crippen Post #62, in honor of this young soldier who was the first to give his life on the battlefield from this community.

Finally, there is left of the family to mourn their loss, the father, mother, six brothers and one sister besides the many who knew and loved the young man as a friend.

William H Crippen was killed on October 4, 1918, and was interred in the Humboldt Cemetery in August of 1921.
