Other Comments:

     They were in the thick of the fighting-in the largest battles of the war. By a glance at their different records, you will see that they fought on practically every front held by Americans---and on some that were not. You will find them in the St. Mihiel Drive, the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, the Battle of Chateau-Thierry, the actions on the Marne, and numerous others. You will find them in and around Sedan in the closing days of the war, when the Kaiser's hordes were practically cornered and fighting for their lives-when the timely signing of the armistice prevented the surrender to Generals Foch and Pershing of what would been the largest body of men every captured. but of the Kay County boys didn't even stop for the armistice---they went on the Coblenz, Bridgehead, and helped  make the ex-kaiser's country "safe for democracy".
