Back on the frontline in 2021 fo follow in the footsteps of a Doughboy of the 37th Division. His grand-nephew has sent us a nice testimonial after his visit:
"I contacted Sylvestre to ask him to help me trace the movements of my great-uncle, who served with the American Expeditionary Forces and was wounded in action in September 1918 during the early days of the Meuse-Argonne Campaign. On an unforgettable sunny June 2021 day, Sylvestre showed me not only sites where my great-uncle’s regiment saw action, he even researched and took me to the location where my great-uncle was wounded. Additionally, we visited quite a few other sites associated with the 37th Division that I would have otherwise never known to visit, plus others still where I was able to walk in trenches and see upclose the places where both Allied and German soldiers lived and died just ovee 100 years ago. The day ended with a visit to where my fellow Tennessean Sgt. Alvin C. York earned his Medal of Honor and to the American Cemetery, which in its beauty and pristine peacefulness packs a powerful emotional punch. Sylvestre’s passion for and knowledge of WWI history is contagious and his ability to explain the big picture of the war and little details is very impressive. I cannot say enough good things about the visit. You will thank yourself for organizing a visit with him."
