Mr. Hansen served in World War I.

He served with the 42nd Battery, 5th Anti-Aircraft Sector—Coast Artillery Coast (CAC) American Expeditionary Force.

He was a harness maker at Marshall-Wells Hardware Co. before he was in WWI.

He appears to have been stationed in Lynbrook, New York, at the time the U.S.S. Northern Pacific ran aground off Fire Island, NY. The U.S.S. Northern Pacific was carrying many American soldiers sick with influenza.
