John William McGrain, Sr.

Submitted by: John W. McGrain, Jr. {son}}

John William McGrain SrMy father worked as a civilian employee of the Quartermaster Corps forwarding supplies to the front. They took over the Candler Building in Baltimore and also shipped material through Fort Holabird.

The Candler Building belonged to the Coca Cola Company founded by Asa Candler. They called it the "Battle of Coca-Cola."

That building still stands as far as I know on Market space near the inner harbor.

I still have a badge my father wore.

Dates Served: 1918
