Remembering a Colorado World War I nurse who died 100 years ago this month
SURREY, England -- On this Veterans Day, we have the story of a Colorado hero you may have never heard of before. She died 100 years ago this month, and FOX31 traveled all the way to Great Britain, where she was laid to rest, to tell her story. On four acres outside London sits Brookwood American Cemetery, where 468 Americans who served in World War I are buried. Eight of them are Colorado heroes. Some died exactly 100 years ago this weekend, like Army Private Hugh H. Hamill of Colorado. There's also Rosco Crum, the only man from the tiny town of Towner, Colorado in Kiowa County to die during the 'Great War.'
