Outstanding!!!
I have an affinity for the 80th in WW1, my great grandfather was in the 80th. I have some pics around here somewhere of him and others in uniform. If you would like I can scan and post them. Here is a pic, of his helmet.
Un fortunately I dont know what regiment he was attached to, All I know is he was a pigeon carrier attached to headquarters.

Thanks for the kind words, Great Helmet! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

Gentlemen,
My great uncle Cpl.Paul C.Berry was in Battery B,314th,Field Artillery.All I have are his NARA files and his unit history.
I know it's a long shot....But if you would be so kind to look through your photos.I would love to have a picture of him or his battery.
He was from Wyatt/Shinnston,W.Va.
Thank you,
Bob Berry

Hi Bob
Unfortunately I`ve no Photos from the B Btry 314th FA. But I have an E-Mail address from the Historian of the 80th Division Veterans Association. His Name is Bruce Smith and he amiantain the Archive of the veterans Association. He could help you out.

bcsmith@innernet.net

Could you send me a copie of your great uncle`s NARA File? My E-Mail is blue.ridge@hispeed.ch
Cause I maintain the Unit Roster of WWI and your Great Uncles Information is not complete.

Private Giovanni Tenuta, Co. C, 318th Infantry Regiment. This is from the Tenuta Family website, which is no longer active. Tenuta was born in Calabria, Italy, but moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin, from where he was drafted into the 85th Division. He was sent to France with that division in 1918, and then assigned to the 80th Division as a replacement in October, 1918; he participated in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.
