In France the division served on the
Artois section with the British, took
part in the St. Mlhiel drive and par
ticipated in all three phases of the
Meuse-Argonne battle, which began on
September 26, 1918, and was concluded
with the armistice.
Since the war the veterans have re
tained their organization identity and
have held annual reunions, which bring
together thousands of former soldiers
from all parts of the country. The re
union this year, it is stated, is expected
to be unusually large by reason of the
fact that it marks the first time that
Washington has been selected as a
meeting place, and hundreds of the
veterans are planning to make their
trip to the reunion serve the added pur
pose of giving them a speaking ac
