After a lot of work and a lot of help from folks here on the USMF, Pete Belmonte's and my book about the foreign-born soldiers, sailors, and Marines in the US military in the Great War is finally on the street.

 

To all of you who contributed pictures and stories of their relatives or from their collections, we thank you and hope we met your expectations.

Thanks to the folks who helped us with images and info, it is much appreciated. So far I've gotten good reviews on the book! Al and I are proud of the effort. 

Best,

Pete

Just a headsup---if you enjoyed this book, Pete and I have another new WWI book coming out in March 2019---I think you'll enjoy the topic and after having seen the final proofs, I think Pete will agree that the publisher did a great job with the photo layouts and the text.... I'll leave you guessing as to the subject for a while longer because I want the cover of the book to tell the story....

Best for the Marine Corps Birthday and Veterans day

Al
