Where are the Doughboys?
My friend Sue Smythe (“Trainer to the Stars!”) gave me an article that follows up to yesterday’s post on the WWI soldier’s letters home.
For some reason, it had never penetrated my tiny brain that this country does not have a national WWI memorial. We have lots of small ones–my own tiny hamlet has a drinking fountain dedicated to a local boy killed in France–but among all the heaps of bronze and granite in our country’s capital, the Doughboys are nowhre to be seen.
With the last living WWI soldier now 104 years old, perhaps it’s time to think about one?
