After entering the Army, George was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company 116th Infantry. He likely trained with the unit at Camp McClellan and Anniston, Alabama and then sailed with that same unit to France aboard the USS Finland. Arriving in France in June 1918, George was killed in action on 23 Oct 1918 by the same artillery shell that killed Musician Austin Herman Hersh.
Cook Webster was repatriated and now rests forever in the Dayton Cemetery in Dayton, Virginia.
