Lest WE forget...
No forgetting here; my grandfather received a severe GSW to the left thigh in the Meuse-Argonne offensive on Oct. 2, 1918. I'm still trying to learn more about him and his time in France in WWI, but sadly he died in 1938, and my grandmother has been gone for 25 years. I've only started to get more details. And the more I learn about "The Great War", the more I respect the constitution of the men who fought it - on all sides.
