Shown is a mess kit belonging to my Grandfather from WWI that spent time in the trenches during the war between Germany and the European countries along with the United States. The American armies came late into the war, but provided the men, equipment, world power that was needed to tip the balance.
My Grandfather served in the 89th Div., 353rd Infantry thru our involvement in the war, right up to the very end in Germany.
The wall photo is a total of 42"s long showing the soldiers, but just the center is shown.
