Charles E. Matthews (Right): In October, 1918 Charles E. Matthews was killed in action while serving in the U.S. Army. Matthews died on the battlefield in France and was buried in the Centerview, Missouri cemetery. The Warrensburg Legion post was chartered in May 1919 as the Charles E. Matthews Post 131. Matthews was the first soldier from the Warrensburg area to lose his life during World War I.
Russell Crawford (Left): Russell Crawford was only eighteen when he lost his life in the South Pacific during World War II. Crawford was attending Warrensburg High School when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He was buried at sea. Following World War II, the post was renamed the Matthews-Crawford Post 131 and was re-chartered in October, 1946 in honor of Russell Crawford. Again the honor was bestowed upon the first area man to lose his life while serving in war time.
