During the centennial of World War 1, this page periodically remembers American servicemen who gave their lives in that war.
Private Carl Alfred Oefstedahl of Spring Grove, Minnesota, was born in 1893. He appears to have been born in North Dakota, the son of Peter and Inger Oefstedahl, and is recorded as being a resident of North Dakota in the 1900 Census. He served in Company L, 138th Infantry.
