Armand V. Alix's name is on the Doughboy statue in the Acre. This is his story:
Armand was born in July 1898 to Mr. and Mrs. Louis (Lottie) Alix in Lowell. He enlisted in Battery F, 102nd Field Artillery of the American Expeditionary Forces at the age of 19. He sailed for France on the SS Finland September 18, 1917.
During the last year of his life he did marry Florence Sabourin. She never remarried and lived to the age of 99. They are buried together at St. Patrick's Cemetery in Lowell. A square in his memory is at the intersection of Salem and Adams Street.
LEST WE FORGET
Many men and women in the Greater Lowell area served our country. Most came home but some did not. This blog remembers those that served in all wars from Greater Lowell.
