#FlashbackFriday to September 8, 2020, when we honored Judge Robert S. Marx, who established the Disabled American Veterans of the World War, on the Centennial of the DAV. Marx was born in Cincinnati and attended Walnut Hills High School and the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Serving in World War I, he was injured during the Meuse-Argonne offensive and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.
