  May 25, 1917 an article appeared in the Record newspaper explaining Frank Brough's disappointment because he was rejected into service because of a fallen arch in his foot.  

Apparently he did not give up on his pursuit to serve during World War I 

November 15, 1918 an article appeared in the Record newspaper confirming Frank Brough's death through a letter received from the nurse from the Red Cross who was with him the day before he died on July 23, 1918. 

Let us never forget the Marine's sacrifice.
