Gotta love this pic. A bit of the old and a bit of the new! Maybe we should ditch the modern helmet and go back to the Brodie!

Are the GIs wearing the ammo pouches for the Springfield?

These GIs were all dolled up to lead the Bastille Day Parade back in July. The Brodies mark the arrival of the AEF during WWI. Cool Stuff.

Looks as if those are for the Springfield's 5-round
stripper clips.

Wonder why the Colors are cased – and why NO PUTTEES !?

cased colors: could be a rehearsal or pre-parade shot

I would say an evening-time rehearsal given the lights on the vehicles.

Nice pic genew49. My father's brother was in the 1st during that time period. He went on to land in N. Africa (Torch), Sicily (Husky) and Normandy (Neptune), where he was killed. We have a few pics of him in various kit.

Ironically, after moving all around the eastern and southern seaboard for training, maneuvers, etc., he ended up in a staging base just 8-10 miles from home before deploying overseas. That was the last the family ever got to see him.

Thanks zoneofcontrol. Your uncle sacrificed his life so guys like us could live free of oppression. Our families tried to insure that our generation had opportunities they didn't have. Overall I think they did a pretty good job. Happy New Year to you and your family.
