Last week my great uncle, Lt. George S. Dole, was featured in a spot on Bill Green's Maine. The focus was more on his wrestling career, and especially his gold medal in the 1908 London Olympics, but it touched on his service on the subchasers as well.
Given that my focus is on subchasers and WWI service, it was nice to see a piece on his earlier life, which was remarkable. Some of the documents shown in the TV spot, and a number of others, are online here. Anyone interested in the early history of Olympic wrestling may find those worth looking through.
