"Thank you. Thank you so much for your service. Also, Tim Franks to the AMC and the society in many of my other friends are here, and my family, my mom and dad, I really appreciate your support. Thank you over the years. I've written eleven books in all of those books. If found me in one way or another and what I mean by that. It's not a cliche. The story finds me if it's, you know, Washington's immortals we're walking I was walking with the battalion commander. I was with influenza, and we found a rusted old sign that said here like two hundred fifty six continental soldiers Marilyn heroes were buried in a mass grave in Maryland in Brooklyn somewhere, and I wanted to know the back story of that story it's history in plain sight, and the unknowns is no different. I was given the opportunity to be a guy in France for the fifth marines and later, the wounded warrior regiment, and as we walked the the battleground the hallowed ground a bellawood which happened exactly one hundred years ago to this day where the Marine Corps in the second division help save Paris. They they stopped the German drive. I mean, we we look around the. The news, and there's very little talked about the battle of bellawood in that generation of of of dough, boys. It's the reason why I wrote the the announce it's an unknown generation. It's a forgotten generation that changed the world. We're walking around the shell holes bellawood. They're still mustard gas entombed in some of the the hardwood. Trees bellawood the land is scarred by World War One. And I was joined by brothers that I was with influenza, and it was quite striking. The two generation said met at one place in it was a situation where Volusia nearly killed all of us were the former Ottoman empire. Now, iraq. Was was directly a result of that. It was it was that that meeting of generations. That that made me wonder. And then I found out that Ernest a Janson main and epic charge on a place called hill. One forty two as we walked up to forty two. This is the high ground near bellawood. It was crucial the marines on June six nine thousand nine hundred eighteen charged across a wheatfield under heavy machine gun fire maxim machine gunners. They charged in civil war formation because they were ordered to by the French. It was a it was a bloodbath. Many of these men dropped from the machine gun bullets. They kept charging they kept making their way towards hill. One forty two in for unbelievably they were able to take out a position that was held by a battalion of Germans, and they seize the hill and against all adds the hill. But within twenty minutes, they knew what was coming next a German counterattack Jansen and George Hamilton. But the forty nine company. This book is a band of brothers on the forty ninth company as well as the body bears in this book, and the story of the unknown soldier braced for the counter attack and Janssen saw in the distance nearly a dozen stall Heim camouflage hamlets making their way up towards his position setting up several maxima sheen guns on heavy sleds. He knew if they were able to set those up they would sweep the hill and take it you let out a blood curdling cry and charged forward. And stop the attack the German attack disrupted the entire attack and potentially save the hill for his actions. He was the first medal of honor recipient for the Marine Corps. He was also Pershing's body bear. And what I found that out. I wanted to know who the other men work. It was at that point. The unknowns found me, and I spent years uncovering their story, which is an untold story. It's an untold story within multiple until stories that are hidden in plain sight the tomb itself. Has an incredible history. But it's history in plain sight. It's the back story behind the tomb. Who were the people that were selected to bring back? The remains how the unknown was selected all of these stories are woven into a single-story a narrative history, that's very cinematic that brings you to World War One through the eyes of the men the most decorated enlisted men of the war who saw some of the toughest action in every in nearly every major battle. But general Pershing when he selected his eight body bearers selected individuals from the army, the navy and the Marine Corps, and then within that he selected individuals from the combat specializations of combat engineers, for instance, in these aren't guys that built things they blew things up in the case of Thomas Saunders who was a body bear in this book, who's a native American given some of the most difficult assignments of the war had to bring the wire with. Only a pair of wire cutters and breached the wire making a hole to allow the rest of the infantry to go through you have the cavalry. It's hard to believe, but there were mounted troops in France. And one of our great stories is body there. Harry Taylor who is practically born in the saddle a cowboy that was raised in Wyoming and Taylor fought with the First Cavalry. For instance, for the at the beginning of his career was involved in numerous conflicts, and then found himself in France training men with the ninety first division, the wild west division who makes an epic charge. A suicide charge at a place called guests in the argon argon one of America's bloodiest battles. There's also the infantry Samuel woodville. One of America's most decorated dope, boys. There's the heavy guns. I mean, this is a forgotten aspect of roar one. They re rail guns in France and heavy artillery in one of the body bears is represented there Louis racks, the field artillery, forgotten branch in many ways, these are men that were with in most cases, French seventy five's artillery pieces that moved up with the infantry in some cases, they were in combat with the infantry as they moved up in provided close artillery support as the infantry advanced. This is the story that's in the unknowns. It's it's try general Pershing was trying to be very comprehensive in the way that in fair in the way that he told the story of World War One through the eyes of these men. And then of course, there's the extraordinary story. Of the tomb itself in how it was how the body the unknown was selected, and I I follow a Chicago and a Doboy named chart Edward f younger through the entire war. And younger was part of the second infantry division an elite unit within the the American expeditionary forces that fights in some of the greatest battles of the war. And and younger is there. He's a Doboy a regular grunt. A sergeant that fights from battle the battle. He's wounded twice very severely. And then I'll get into the story of how he selected. It's quite extraordinary. Patrick O'Donnell un-american history. His book is about the soldiers selected to escort the remains of the unknown. Soldiers home. And then there's the story of hall all of these men in individuals come together. Here in Washington DC, I on November ninth nineteen twenty one. And then they bring this the most extraordinary individual the unknown soldier to his final resting place in Arlington Virginia. Let me just kind of go back a little bit in time though in talk about some of these body bears because this book is about about stories. It's about extraordinary story extraordinary individuals that in many cases did the impossible. And I mean, what would you will you'll see in this? This book is individuals that had overcome extreme hardship. Talking about gas persistently all the time as they fought bodies that were covered with with with lot lice, and mites and. As as they fought through combat because they weren't able to change their uniforms. They also had battle and fight the greatest army in the world at the time the German army. The let me go back in time to nineteen seventeen. When America was unprepared. America went from an army of about two hundred and twenty thousand regulars to an army of over four million strong at the end of the war. It's an extraordinary story of growth in a in a in a time of great need, and we mobilized, but one part of the story is a forgotten story. And that's the story of the navy in World War One. The American navy in World War One in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in March nineteen seventeen president Wilson. Had a real threat on his hands. German u boats were sinking American shipping at an alarming rate, even before we entered World War One. There was a decision made to bring naval guards on board. Merchant ships to arm them with typically five inch guns and give the merchant ship accrue about fifteen naval personnel. These are known as naval guards in one of those individuals was James Delaney. James Delaney was a a tough Irishman from Boston Massachusetts. His body was inked with the ships that he served on. He'd been serving since eighteen his life was the navy, and he was given command of a naval gun crew on the USS the SS Capanna merchant ship and their their journey in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in the summer of nineteen seventeen actually was going pretty well. Until midsummer, and they were there are making their way back to the United States. And all of a sudden a torpedo nearly hit the ship. It was then quickly followed by our Tillery fire. The men manned their guns in began to respond you boat. Sixty one was proved by an expert. Diekmann? His name was Lieutenant Lieutenant captain diekmann who had sunk nearly forty naval ships from the allies at this point. And now his prey was the US Capanna James Delaney went into action with his crew they manned their guns, and they started to fire upon the u boat, but Victor diekmann the captain of the boat was was was quite quite knowledgeable on these fares and sunk many, allied ships. He wisely stayed out of range of the companions guns. But what ensued was a cat and mouse chase for hours both sides fired their guns at each other as the companion tried to flee the battlespace eventually you boat, sixty one rounds rebelled hit the side of the Capanna one near the engine compartment. James Delaney's men were were firing so many rounds at their eardrums began to bleed. But they ran out of aim mission. And several of the of the u boat shells struck the companion. Captain Oliver who's a New Yorker on the Capanna decides to strike, his colors and surrenders vessel. The u boat moves in close the go right by the the actual robots that they companions crew and James Delaney are in nearly wiped them out as they go so close to it. But then they have a boarding party that that that goes aboard the Capanna. They set several charges, and but before they do that they raid the food locker onboard the companion of life on board a submarine was very harsh. They only had canned goods or whatever they could bring aboard. Once the journey began the journey was also dirty and filthy the engines on board the u boat sixty one let off a lot of Greece in. There was inside the boat. There was something called U-boats, sweat, literally condensation would be inside the boat, and it would get on on on the men's clothes in their coffee in their food everything. So remarkably the first thing that they did when they went on board the companion was look for soap, and they went for the soap, and they try to clean themselves off, and they got the food, and they also look for anything of intelligence value, and they detonated the ship and sank it. And at that point the men, including James Delaney were brought him. Board. Six of these men were brought on board u boat sixty one and the captain is a remarkable figure. He speaks perfect English. And he begins to question, James Delaney. And here is a a meeting of two men, they both they become I wouldn't say there's a friendship forum, but there's a mutual respect that's formed including the respect with the crews because the men James Delaney's crew and his men endure with the men of the u boat endure, and if you've ever seen the movie daas boat, it's an America. It's a World War Two version of a u boat under see, but this is this is a World War One dot spout of what James Delaney goes through and the men of the u boat sixty one including Victor deepen their their depth charged. They have to they have the endured what's known as a Q Q boat, literally a merchant ship. The allies have that is actually a worship that's disguises merchant ship. But it's it's designed to is soon as the u boat surface to basically reveal hidden guns in attack the boat. They go through a minefield. And it's just an extraordinary story. Won't tell the entire story. But I will tell you that at the end of the voyage both crews lined up for photo in what James Delaney did know and the other Americans that day was that you boats. Sixty one's crew were all Walking Dead men because within a matter of weeks or months, they would never be seen again. This is the powerful stories that are inside the announce. That took me here stun earth, including here. Some of these stories were found here in the national archives as I on earth them. Another incredible story is the story of the forty ninth company of the Marine Corps. The helmet next to me is not the forty nine company. It's actually to five which is second second battalion fifth marines, but their story really begins at bellawood which happened exactly one hundred years ago to this day. I mentioned the the epic charge on June six where the men this was in a World War One day that nobody's ever heard about practically unless you're in the Marine Corps or unless you're World War One ball. This is where the Marine Corps advanced across several fields under heavy machine gun fire. But what happened before that was quite extraordinary at the end of may early June. The Germans have launched a major offensive year at Rome. Sorry at at. At paris. And they were breaking through the French lines literally. The French army was melting away the the archives talk about how it was like water on a hide iron. It was just a parading. The French army was Evaporating men from the forty ninth company in two five in the marines and the fifth and sixth regiment as well as the second division..

"This is the untold story America's unknown soldier buried in Arlington cemetery, November eleven nineteen twenty one and the body the men who were chosen by the military to take the casket to its final resting place. We're going through the eight body bears who participated that day November eleventh and also their combat and their risk describes the American effort in the great war. You will recall that America's stayed out of the war. And that will Joe Wilson was reelected too proud to fight in one thousand nine hundred sixty soon afterwards having to do with the machinations of the empires that were bleeding themselves to death in Europe. Woodrow Wilson was provoked by the Germans declaring. Unrestrained submarine warfare against all neutrals, meaning sinking passenger liners. American ships friendships anything they could kill because the Germans were starving to death. The British navy had enforced a blockade these many years, and the Germans were eating onions if they could find them. So it was the decision of the Kaiser knowing this would provoke the Americans to take the risk thinking that the Americans could not get men to Europe fast enough in order to stop what he knew would be the German offensive of nineteen eighteen Russia's out of the war in nineteen seventeen. So they move all of their troops. That have been fighting a two front war to launch the offensive that the American stop in June and July and August of nineteen eighteen Patrick's book takes us into the Americans throwing themselves into the line to support. And in most cases, replace the. Broken and fleeing French army broken and fleeing Patrick it's worth mentioning here that as the Americans we've talked about the marines coming in. But the army as well the field artillery is the Americans come into line in the summer of nineteen eighteen they see that the French army is no longer fighting and will not fight. It is at least bellawood. It was not fighting. And then it sort of reconstitute itself at Soissons, and is is is much more of a stable force. But initially. Yeah, it wasn't fighting. And it was the American the presence of these American troops had an enormous morale boost as well as tactical position that they provided by blocking this offensive. I want to be a little more severe the Americans Austrailia, and the Canadians are the offensive units that cracked the Hindenburg line in the summer and fall of nineteen eighteen it's not it's the. Fresh Australian troops the fresh fresh Canadian troops because the British are also exhausted. Yes. And the Americans are not only are launch an offensive, but they have a million men coming behind them. Yes. I mean, this is an extraordinary story that's told in the unknowns. It's a story of going from two hundred and twenty thousand regular troops in one thousand nine hundred seventeen to over four million men at arms in one thousand nine hundred eighty two million of them in Europe. Yes. It's time for ordinary story building this incredible army. There's a flood coming which is part of the political calculation. The Germans must make here. Can they stop the Americans? So we go we've we've talked of the marines at bellawood and the field artillery at Soissons, we turn now to a man named Sanders company. A second engineers born in medicine, bow Wisconsin, and he is striking and most importantly in striking because he's one of ten thousand native Americans who participated in the first war. Yes. I mean, the story of native Americans in the first four is sort of forgotten story as well. In fact, many of these native Americans weren't even American citizens at the time, they they will have been deprived of that by the constitution. You will all recall the one that was signed in the eighteenth century. It had not been at this point corrected. Yes. And but interestingly enough the stereotype of the American injury Indian as the. Alternate warrior kind of holds up in the American army. They're put in some of the most dangerous positions in the American army as runners or as reconnaissance Sanders assistant engineer is their job. He's an he's a combat engineer. But he's not there to build things. He's there to blow things up or to preach the line. And this is the four Lon hope of the of World War One. He's given wire cutters and told the snip individual strands of mountains of barbed wire to breach it to make a hole to allow the advancing troops to break through. He's present at the big battle that is to come the Musar gone before and during and after Musar gone, they send the combat engineers in. I I know this very well. Patrick knows it very well. Because my father was a combat engineer in the second walls, and we talked to him on the sixtieth anniversary his job on d day was the gap assault team thirteen to breach the German obstacles. Auto Maho beach. That's exactly the job Sanders has he wasn't landing in a landing craft. He's to go in front of the assault battalions on his belly. I can imagine and cut the wires. So not only the infantry can come through. But also the tanks. Absolutely. His first real action is my fights at bellawood any fights the Swiss on, but his first significant action is at San Miguel where the Americans go on the offensive to reduce a salient that had been created there. Since the beginning of the war and Saunders is pushed out front along with September. Yes. And I pushed out front to breach the barbed wire and the German commander on the other side is given orders to all of his men to shoot any if they ever site Indians on contact immediately, focus all sniper fire on them. So he's really a target. If he's if he's able to be if they identify him, but he's. Out there in front, and he's just sustaining sniper fire artillery fire, and he's cutting this wire, but they breached the wire, the, you know, the infantry follows behind them, but they're out front the small group to men, and they they push into toward San Mahal that San Mateo into the salient. And they they make their way into a small town where they. There's a German strongpoint, which is actually an old French Chateau, and they enter the strong point. And they keep they start taking prisoners the small two men. Start taking prisoners I ten then fifteen eventually Saunders captures over sixty sixty three German prisoners. Singlehandedly Saunders is live. He goes home. And he dies in nineteen forty seven. Patrick is provided. What we what we can know of the body of errors. He lives almost entirely in the west San Antonio, Texas, and he's buried at the Golden Gate national cemetery for anyone who is concerned about his fate and wants to go. Find a native American combat hero from the first war who was one of the body bears. Now, Harry Taylor also from the wild west and participating in the wild west division. Born nineteen o one for Yellowstone, Wyoming. If there are some regional sense of how they chose these men, although I note. That they all had to be within six feet tall. Right. That was that was one of the requirements, but it was general Pershing that actually had the final selection on all these men the army in in the navy in the Marine Corps cold through all the files in that was given to general Pershing to finally selected them. And then Pershing wanted decorated heroes. But also he wanted to tell the story of the af through each of the branches of service. The army the navy the Marine Corps, and then the combat specials af is American. Expeditionary force was called the whole military commitment by the United States racked. And that's what these body bears. Do they provide us the story of the af through the individuals wild west division is the ninety first division. It also fought valiantly in the second war. My memory is the ninety. I know that was the ninetieth the breakout of Normandy. But September twenty six twenty seventh the ninety first with its jumps off the three hundred and sixty seconds. Regiment, is is a Harry Taylor's regiment, plows into what is called the bloody Gulch. What is that? This is part of the muse Argonne offensive. And if you picture the scene I like to look at it. He's also been there. Diane the same today. It's it's battle-scarred. And you know, it's something else. But I mean World War One if you picture the opening scene of saving private Ryan. It was bunkered positions everywhere. And these are men that are going over the top with just ten Brodie helmets. No body armor in wool uniforms and pushing forward into a hailstorm frontal assault fixed positions had been a quiet sector for years. The Germans were deeply dug in and the American summer all was one of the American commanders and Pershing through division after regiment after company after battalion against machine gun positions that were deeply buried. Deeply buried, and it was over open ground, and it was a bloodbath in the wild west divisions called that. Because most of these men were from the western states or key Canadian. I mean, sorry Alaskan territory, these are loggers these guys that, you know, hunters in even some interestingly enough men from California. So there are some Hollywood guys in this in this unit is well, you say that the assault on guests nee was suicide. It was it was a deeply held German strongpoint. These men had to go over nearly a mile of open ground just to get to the town and their machine gun, nests everywhere artillery that was fixed and these men had to cook it cross it. And it's it's it's an unbelievable story is the title of the chapter is the charge of the light brigade in Taylor was actually part of a mounted unit a headquarters unit within the ninety first. And in some points. The battle actually was on horseback. Sergeant Samuel would fill sergeant Samuel woodville who becomes a Lieutenant. But then is reduced to Sergey thirty five years old born eighteen eighty three and he is Musar gone as well, and is near to patent who leads the tank, assault and bazaar gone would fill is a very brave, man. He's wounded he's near the lost battalion as well. All of these all of these very famous events make appearances in Patrick's book has he's putting together because we're following the body bearers, they touched upon all the battlefields would fill is also very brave man who marries and has a very good life on a farm afterwards. What does he do that? Dan, Musar gone. I call him Pershing's one man's story. That's the story. I wrote and Breitbart because it's extraordinary. He's given the task of a probing attack with his company into the heart of. Of of death. I mean, it's the Hindenburg line. It's more of these fixed positions that are bunkered. There's machine gun nests everywhere there sniper positions, and there's the gas which is omnipresent, and they push in into this is death. This meat grinder is death factory. And would fill is their leading his men and all of a sudden ten of his men are wiped out by machine gun. Nests would feel springs into action is as men kind of hold back any pushes forward on his own and takes out the machine gun nest with with accurate rifle fire from Springfield. He's an he's a hunter before the war, and a crack shot takes out that machine gun. Nests keeps pushing forward lands into a shell hole, which is filled with mustard gas. The mustard gas candidates like sits there. It's persistent in many cases in the gases picture. It's more of an oily like a little droplets. It gets on your skin. If it gets in your lungs. It can kill you. And it just irradiates everything. He catches a face full of this mask of this gas, but keeps pushing forward even though his eyes are irritated any takes out of nother machine. Gun nest kill several Germans as they try to reoccupy it, and then he's pushing forward even though he can hardly see and encounters. Another nest kills several men with his forty five which suddenly jams and. He's about to be killed by a German. That's lunging at him. And he picks up a pick. That's next to the machine gun and in Gore's. The man is he's is springs. Adam the book is the unknowns were telling the story of the body bears the combat units and the.

"Book is the unknown. This is the untold story of America's unknown soldier buried in Arlington cemetery, November eleven nineteen twenty one. And the body back. The men who are chosen by the military to take the casket to its final resting place. We're going through the eight body bears who participated that day November eleventh and also their combat and their risk describes the American effort in the great war. You will recall that America's stayed out of the war. And that will Joe Wilson was reelected too proud to fight in one thousand nine hundred sixty soon afterwards having to do with the machinations of the empires that were bleeding themselves to death in Europe. Woodrow Wilson was provoked by the Germans declaring an unrestrained submarine warfare against all neutrals, meaning sinking passenger liners American ships, friendships anything they could kill because the Germans were starving to death. The British navy had enforced a blockade these many years, and the Germans were. Eating onions if they could find. So it was the decision of the Kaiser knowing this would provoke the Americans to take the risk thinking that the Americans could not get men to Europe fast enough in order to stop what he knew would be the German offensive of nineteen eighteen Russia's out of the war in nineteen seventeen. So they move all of their troops. That have been fighting a two front war to launch the offensive that the American stop in June and July and August of nineteen eighteen Patrick's book takes us into the Americans throwing themselves into the line to support. And in most cases, replace the broken and fleeing French army broken and fleeing Patrick it's worth mentioning here that as the Americans we've talked about the marines coming in. But the army as well the field artillery is the Americans come into line in the summer of nineteen eighteen they see that the French army is no longer fighting and will. Not fight. It is at least at bellawood. It was not fighting. And then it sort of reconstitute itself at Soissons and his his is much more of a stable force. But initially. Yeah, it was in fighting, and it was the American the presence of these American troops had an enormous morale-boost as well as tactical position that they provided by blocking this offensive. I want to be a little more severe the Americans. The Australians Canadians are the offense of units that cracks the Hindenburg line in the summer and fall of nineteen eighteen it's not it's the fresh Australian troops the fresh fresh Canadian troops because the British are also exhausted. And the Americans are not only are launching a offensive, but they have a million and coming behind them. Yes. I mean, this is an extraordinary story that's told it in in the unknowns. It's the story of going from two hundred and twenty thousand regular troops in one thousand nine hundred seventeen to over four million men at arms in one thousand nine hundred eighty two million of them in Europe. Yes, it's a say ordinary story building this incredible army. There's a flood coming which is part of the political calculation. The Germans must make here. Can they stop the Americans? So we go we've we've talked of the marines at bellawood and the field artillery at Soissons, we turn now to a man named Sanders company. A second engineers born in medicine, bow Wisconsin, and he is striking and most importantly in striking because he's one of ten thousand native Americans who participated in the first war. Yes. I mean, the story of native Americans in the first four is sort of a forgotten story as well. In fact, many of these native Americans weren't even American citizens at the time, they they will have been deprived of that by the constitution. You will all recall the one that was signed in the eighteenth century. It had not been at this point corrected. Yes. But interestingly enough the stereotype of the American injury Indian as the ultimate warrior kind of holds up in the American army. They're put in some of the most dangerous positions in the American army as runners or as reconnaissance Sanders is an engineer their job. He's an he's a combat engineer. But he's not there to build things. He's there to blow things up or to breach the line. And this is the forlorn hope of the of World War One. He's given wire cutters and told the snip individual strands of mountains of barbed wire to breach it to make a hole to allow the advancing troops to break through. He's present at the big battle that is to come the Musar calm before and during and after Musar gone, they send the combat engineers in. I I know this very well. Patrick knows it very well. Because my father was a combat engineer. The second wars, and we talked to him on the sixtieth anniversary his job on d day was the gap assault team thirteen to breach the German obstacles auto Mahal beach. That's exactly the job. Sanders has he wasn't landing in a landing craft. He's to go in front of the salt battalions on his belly. I can imagine and cut the wires. So not only the infantry can come through. But also the tanks. Absolutely. His first real action is my fights at bellawood any fights this was on. But his first significant action is at San Miguel where the Americans go on the offensive to reduce a salient that had been created there. Since the beginning of the war and Saunders is pushed out front along with one other September. Yes. And I pushed out front to breach the barbed wire and the German commander on the other side is given orders to all of his men to shoot any if they ever site Indians on contact immediately and focus all cyber fire on them. So he's really a target. If he's if he's able to be on if they identify him, but he's out there in front, and he's just, you know, sustaining sniper fire artillery fire, and he's cutting this wire, but they breached the wire the. You know, the infantry follows behind them, but they're out front. It's a small group to men, and they push into it toward San Mahal that San Mateo into the salient, and they they make their way into a small town where the there's a German strongpoint, which is actually an old French Chateau, and they enter the strong point. And they keep they start taking prisoners the small to men start taking prisoners I ten then fifteen eventually Saunders captures over sixty sixty three German prisoners. Singlehandedly Sanders is live he goes home. And he dies in nineteen forty seven. Patrick has provided. What we what we can know of the body bears. He lives almost entirely in the west and San Antonio, Texas, and he's buried at the Golden Gate national cemetery for anyone who is concerned about his fate and wants to go find a native American combat. Hero from the first war who was one of the body bears. Now, Harry Taylor also from the wild west and participating in the wild west division. Born nineteen o one fort Yellowstone, Wyoming is there are some regional sense of how they chose these men. Although I note that they all had to be within six feet tall. Right. That was that was one of the requirements, but it was general Pershing than actually had the final selection on all these men the army in in the navy in the Marine Corps cold through all the files in that was given to general Pershing to finally selected them. And then Pershing wanted a decorated heroes. But also he wanted to tell the story of the af through each of the branches of service. The army the navy the Marine Corps and then the combat specialization EFF's American. Expeditionary force was called the whole military commitment of by the United States. Right. And that's what these body bears. Do they provide us the story of the af through the? Individuals wild west division is the ninety first division. It also fought valiantly in the second war. My memory is the ninety. I know that was the ninetieth the breakout of Normandy. But September twenty six twenty seven the ninety first with its jumps off the three hundred and sixty second regiment, is is a Harry Taylor's regiment, plows into what is called the bloody Gulch. What is that? This is part of the muse Argonne offensive. And if you picture the scene I liked to look at it also been there. I have the same today. It's it's battle-scarred, and, you know, something else, but I mean World War One if you picture the opening scene of saving private Ryan. It was bunkered positions everywhere. And these are men that are going over the top with just ten Brodie helmets. No body armor in wool uniforms, and pushing forward into a hailstorm frontal assault fixed positions had been a quiet sector for years, the German. Were deeply dug in and the American Summerall was one of the American commanders in Pershing through division after regimen after company after battalion against machine gun positions that were deeply buried. Deeply buried, and it was all over open ground, and it was a bloodbath in the wild west divisions called that. Because most of these men were from the western states or Canadian. I mean, sorry Alaskan territory, these are loggers these guys that, you know, hunters and even some interestingly enough men from California. So there some Hollywood guys in this in this unit is well, you say that the assault on guests nee was suicide. It was it was a deeply held German strongpoint.

"There have actually been three times in this is no longer just about elimination games in playoff history there have been three times a team has won a playoff game in which the starter went zero two thirds of one inning we have got three games most recently in game four of the 1980 one world series bob welsh was starting for the dodgers and welches outing went like so willie randolph triple larry melbourne double dave winfield walk or do jackson single dave goals jolts a hit look these things up for dave g replaces bob wealth pitching and better ninth so welsh lasted four batters he retired none of them in that game inning ended with the yankees in the dodgers to nothing and the dodgers ultimately one eight two seven so 1980 81 bob welsh zero outs and and the doctors to one before that we go back to nineteen of forty seven we have got v brooklyn dodgers who uh who defeated the new york yankees three two this is game for the world series and nothing forty seven had enough i said that for anyway so harry taylor was the starter for the brooklyn dodgers and harry taylor's outing went so stuff snuffy stern weiss single tommy henrik i can i got it done wrecked tummy henrik single yogi berra hina that one fearless choice but there was an error and then joe dimaggio walked with the bases loaded at that point harry taylor was removed he was relieved by halla gregg who then got a pop fly and a doubleplay so even though harry taylor retired none of the first four batters he was moved from the game the yankees for just one run in the inning now this game became much more incredible later on because even though the dodgers did score a run in the fifth inning that narrowed the scored a two to one yankees bill bevan's started this game for the yankees and i'm just gonna make sure i'm not mispronouncing be vince well in any way bill bevan's from salem oregon he was starting a for the yankees and here's the really interesting thing about this game.
