Place: Served and Died in WW IIndividual Note:
Interview with Connie Shaw: John Dillon died in the flu pandemic at Camp Fort Dix, New Jersey in 1918. He was Gram's baby brother and talked about him often. My mother was 13 when he died and she had a crush on him because she said he was so handsome. The flu epidemic killed more soldiers than died in WWI. If you want to learn more about it you can Google "The 1918 Flu Pandemic".
Excerpt from PBS: To a world already ravaged by war, the 1918 pandemic was crippling; some 30 to 40 million people died worldwide, with the highest death rate occuring in young men and women. In the United States, 675,000 people died, including over 40,000 G.I.s -- 40 percent of all of those who perished in World War I. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets/case_killerflu/
Wikipedia....More info available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu
The 1918 flu pandemic was a category 5 influenza pandemic between 1918 and 1920 caused by an unusually severe and deadly strain of the subtype H1N1 of the species Influenza A virus. By far the most destructive influenza pandemic in history, it killed some 50 million to 100 million people worldwide in just 18 months,  dwarfing the simultaneous bloodshed due to World War I. Furthermore, many of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients.
Despite its not having originated in Spain, the Allies of World War I came to call it the Spanish Flu. This was mainly because the pandemic received greater press attention in Spain than in the rest of the world, as Spain was not involved in the war and had not imposed wartime censorship.
Scientists have used tissue samples from frozen victims to reproduce the virus for study. Given the strain's extreme virulence and the possibility of accidental escape (or deliberate release) from quarantine, there has been controversy regarding the wisdom of such research. Among the conclusions of this research is that the virus kills via a cytokine storm, which explains its unusually severe nature and the unusual age profile of its victims.
Note for: Patrick Joseph Moloney, ABT 1937 - ABT MAR 1997 Index
Mr. Moloney was know to visit Anne Marie McGettigan (Daughter of John Gallagher) at the Children's home in Blackrock with mother Anne Teresa McGettigan. It was believed that Mr. Moloney would have adopted Anne Marie as his own after marrying Anne Teresa if not for the social stigma of the time.
