    WW1 soldier wearing the patch of the 78th Division.

    Additionally, the collar branch identifies the soldier to B Co. 311th Infantry.

    There is an online unit history for the company-- didn't realize how heavily engaged the unit was until I read the history.

    The unit deployed with 232 officers and soldiers and suffered considerable casualties: 36 KIA, another 13 DOW, 83 WIA, 16 Gassed, and 22 MIA. That is a total of 170 COMBAT Casualties!
