"All Hell Can't Stop Us"
Everett Deon Cagle was inducted Monday, May 26, 1918 at Clarksville, Arkansas. He received only 24 days of training at Camp Pike, Arkansas before being shipped to France on July 18, 1918. He was just 31 days away from his 25th birthday. He spent his birthday in the trenches of the Muese-Argonne offensive in France. Pvt. Cagle suffered Mustard Gas burns during that offensive that left him disabled - in and out of hospitals for the rest of his life.
One year after returning home from the war he married Mildred (Mintie) Artisha Vick. They had seven children, Mildred (1922), Charlie (1925), Louise (1927), Chester (1930), Nadine (1931), Donald (1935) and Ruby (1936). Everett passed away in a U.S. Army hospital in Livermore CA. on July 24th 1949 at the age of 56; he was survived by his wife and his children.
