Memorial Day Tribute to Bernard Fry

Bernard FryeThis Memorial Day, Renner Kenner recognizes Bernard Frye, who served in the Rainbow Division, 42nd Infantry, during World War I. Bernard falsified his age by two years in order to enlist. In one interesting incident, Bernard posed as a body double for Gen. John J. (Blackjack) Pershing in a famous portrait done by artist Arthur Cahill. Apparently, they were about the same size and Gen. Pershing only had time to sit long enough to have his face painted.

When Bernard returned home from the war, he earned his law degree from Georgetown University, and worked as a patent and trademark attorney for Goodyear Tire before joining our firm. Bernard is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
