Group to Willie Anderson, 30th Division, WWI. Anderson was wounded on 28SEP1918, the day before the 30th Division's spectacular breakthrough at ST Quentin Canal, smashing through The Hindenburg Line, during the Somme Offensive. He was probably fortunate to have been wounded on the 28th, since the 29th of September, 1918, remains to this day, the bloodiest day in North Carolina history.

Here's a neat little piece of history. It's a WWII canteen coupon book for German POW's held in "captivity" at Mitchell Field. Only one or two coupons have been removed, and contains several denominations of change.
