When I started volunteering at the museum I was curious why Carl wasn't honored as the first soldier killed in the line of duty, from Lucas county during WWI. Sue Terrell and I decided to change that. Sue did a lot of research about young Carl, while I rounded up some photographs. Now my daughter Kylie Dittmer is writing the story of Carl. It will soon be on display at Lucas County Historical Society Museum. At the cemetary tour, my son Patrick Dittmer, will put on his army uniform and tell the story of our family member, Carl L Caviness and why he is one of the people being honored that day.
