|Lt. Levi Lamb|
Assigned to the 9th Infantry Regiment of the 2nd Division, he fought at Château-Thierry in June and July 1918. He was killed in action near Soissons leading his men onward, 18 July 1918, the opening day of the offensive stage of the Second Battle of the Marne. In August 1921, at his family's request, Levi Lamb's remains were returned home from France and buried at the Buck Valley Methodist Church Cemetery in Fulton County, PA.
After the war, Levi Lamb's commanding officer, Col. John Samuel, wrote of him: "The regiment lost a courageous and gallant officer beloved alike by his fellow officers and men. His conduct during the battle, as in former engagements with his regiment, has been of the highest order and an inspiration to all about him."
He has been honored since 1952 as the namesake of Levi Lamb Fund athletic scholarship endowment at his alma mater.
