Paul Herbert from First Division Museum at Cantigny Park puts a human face on the soldiers of AEF by sharing stories of interesting men & women who served with the First Division during World War I.

The First Division was a special community that included famous names such as Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., and George C. Marshall; tough commanding generals like Robert L. Bullard and Charles R. Summerall; brave soldiers like Lieutenant Si Parker who received the Medal of Honor; and characters such as Alban Butler who, when not fighting, spent the war drawing cartoons.
