on George Richard’s murder while in a town in France after
wars end.

Even though he was not killed in combat, we put a star after his name because the people of Hackensack had done that for all of the flu victims and also Henry Levitski who was kicked in the
head by a horse after wars end.

Henry Levitski’s
name is on the plaques that are in Hackensack.  George Richard is not on the plaques in Hackensack because he was not really known by the towns people having only lived as a border in a house on Second Street.
