  1. In war time there is no distinction between the Army and the National Guard. The National Guard is the Army but on a part-time basis. When they are ordered into full-time service they are no different than the full-time Army.

  2. My great great grandfather served in WW1, My grandma says he’s didn’t talk about it very much but when he got older he started telling stories on how he was taking cover under a truck and he felt something hit his back, it was half of his friends body.

  3. My great great cousin fought in the American force as a doughboy. I know nothing about him, except he died from a German sniper in the Argonne Offensive. I feel sad that I can't know anything about him or know what his life was like. The Great War was not recorded well for specific soldiers, and allows us for forget what a sacrifice it really was. I'm going to go play Battlefield 1 now. Enjoy your day.

  4. In almost every picture or video of U.S./British soldiers, you can see what look like literal children. 13, 16, it’s heartbreaking to know that all these young boys signed up for a war not knowing what really lay ahead.

  5. Well…while the Brits and the Franks wanted to be strategic and methodical, we wanted to show that we have a pair of balls and go charging in, no matter the risk, no matter the cost! Our death toll was high because we had that attitude, and we still do have that attitude.

  6. OVER THERE! OVER THERE! SEND THE WORD! SEND THE WORD OVER THERE! THAT THE YANKS ARE COMING! THE YANKS ARE COMING! THE DRUMS RUM TUMMING EVERYWHERE! SO PREPARE! SAY A PRAYER! SEND THE WORD! SEND THE WORD TO BEWARE! WE'LL BE OVER! WE'RE COMING OVER! AND WE WON'T COME BACK TILL IT'S OVER OVER THERE!
