Bonjour:

Mon nom est Mark LeBlanc. Je suis un professeur de sciences informatiques à un petit collège près de Boston, USA. Pour les 10 dernières années, mon frère et moi avons fait des recherches sur les parcours, les batailles, et les expériences de mon grand-père (John M. Longley, 26th division AEF, d'infanterie 103) comme il répondu à l'appel pour combattre en France. Notre projet de manuscrit peut être trouvé à: http://cs.wheatoncollege.edu/~mleblanc/WW1.pdf

Comme mon grand-père il ya près de 100 ans, je suis en visite en France pour la première fois dès la semaine prochaine (Septembre 15 - 8 Octobre). Comme mon grand-père, je ne parle pas français. Je suis impatient de connaître votre grand pays .... et je m'excuse de ne pas connaître la langue.

My name is Mark LeBlanc. I am a professor of computer science at a small college near Boston, USA. For the last 10 years, my brother and I have been researching the journey, battles, and experiences of my grandfather (John M.

Like my grandfather almost 100 years ago, I am visiting France for my first time starting next week (September 15 - October Cool. Like my grandfather, I do not speak French. I am looking forward to experiencing your great country .... and I apologize for not knowing your language.

Units of this division were made up from the National Guard troops of the New England States (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Mass., Rhode Island, and Connecticut), together with a contingent of National Army troops from Camp Devens. The first units sailed for France, Sept. 7, 1917, and during Sept. And Oct., 1917, the division was transported to France, through both English and French ports. Division headquarters was established at Neufchateau, France, Oct. 31st. The division went into the line in the Chemin des Dames sector Feb. 6, 1918, was relieved from that sector March 18th, and moved to the La Reine sector northwest of Toul, entering the sector March 31st. The division left this sector June 28th and moved by rail to area east of Meaux. From July 5th to 18th, the division marched to support position behind line Torcy-Bois de Belleau-Vaux, northwest of Chateau-Thierry and took over the Pas Fini sector.
