"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Thanks everyone. This is a very interesting exchange - great history lesson and photos. My (maternal) great-grandfather - Guy Harrison Locke - was a member of the Bradford, PA unit (Co. C) of the 16th Pennsylvania. His cousin joined from TItusville (Co. K). Both deployed to "Porto" Rico and were involved in the Coamo battle. Only man in our family to go off to war and actually be "home by Christmas." Bradford has a nice Spanish-American war memorial - one plaque honoring those who died on the Maine - and one for all who fought in the war.
