Joshua Isham Bliss was a member of SSU 71 although his name does not appear on the official roster of the American Field Service. Perhaps the above excerpt of a letter written home by Harry Crosby in 1917, offers a clue. Bliss was born in Vermont, graduated from Princeton in 1921, and passed away in 1966 on Long Island, New York.
Lawrence James Moran, who is mentioned in the same sentence continued in the AFS and joined the US Army Ambulance Service when the AFS was federalized. He was not omitted from the official record.
The portion of the letter shown with the identity bracelet is from Harry Crosby's War Letters Paris, Black Sun Press, 1931.
