      Leroy (Roy) Lambert's parents were farmers and lived in middle Tennessee (around Winchester and Tullahoma) where all three of their children were born (two boys & one girl). While young, Roy came to Huntsville, AL and did electrical work. He also worked in the textile industry. At the beginning of World War I, he enlisted in the Army, served in France and returned to Huntsville and civilian life after the war.
      He enlisted on 12/14/1917 at Birmingham, AL and was discharged on 2/25/1919 due to a disability of "affected eyes". He was then residing at 807 O'Shaughnessy Ave. in Huntsville, AL. His occupation at the time of his enlistment was "mill hand at textile mill". At the time of his discharge he was a Private in Battalion E of the 60th CAC (Cavalry).
      He reenlisted on 1/14/1921 and was discharged on 1/13/1922 as a Corporal in Hg. Det. 2nd Bn. 19th F.A.
      His final reenlistment was in 1937.
      He worked at his civilian trades a few years, then rejoined the Cavalry at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Several weeks after re-enlisting, his body was found in the Tennesse River in Chatanooga, TN on 6/10/1937 (apparently he had been murdered). He is buried in the Chattanooga National Cemetery in Post 75. He was a private, served in Detachment, Quartermaster Corps, US Army. The informant on his death certificate was listed as James Lambert, Estill Springs, TN.
