Ninety-Eight Years Ago Today: Crosses from 28 Sept. to 2 October

Introduction:  From 26 Sept. to 11 November the webmaster had hoped to post a daily blog entry of activities during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.  However, the realities of work (including business trips), family, and hobby (including tour marketing and two nights of French lessons a week) is making this quite a challenge.  Therefore, the webmaster is scaling back his goals.  However, several individuals have written pieces for the webmaster AND THESE WILL BE PUBLISHED ON THEIR TARGET DATES. 

Also, in the spirit of remembrance, the webmaster will continue to post daily pictures of individual crosses taken during a “random walk” of the Meuse-Argonne Cemetery.  Today’s post includes the “catch-up” of those crosses.
