Czech Legion During WW I
My maternal grandfather was born in 1896 in Komna in what is now the Czech Republic. At the start of WW I in 1914 he would have been 18. I am trying to find out if he served in the Czech Legion during the war or anything else about that time. Family story is that he was a POW with Russia but this is all we know.
He came to America in 1923 and married my grandmother here in NJ.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
