My grandfather was an artillery officer supporting the 371 and 372 USIR. He was highly decorated. He never told his family he commanded black troops. The family believed he served in the French army because he spoke French!

Thanks for yours feedback.
I knew my great-grand-parents. They lived in Picardy during the First World War. I also found remains of American soldiers in the north of the Seine and Marne.
