Remembering the Great War – Occupation of Germany

October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

With a starting strength of a quarter million Doughboys, the Americans began their occupation period in the German Rhineland in December 1918. When it ended in 1923, the force consisted of one thousand soldiers. Many future WWII leaders served in this force; including five who would become Marine Commandant, four Army Chiefs of Staff, ten four-star Generals, and, surprisingly, a National Football League Head coach. Listen to historian, Al Barnes, share this little-known story of The Great War’s aftermath.
