WW1 Native-Americans

<— Prev    |    Next —>

If not for this small clipping from the American Army W.W. I newspaper THE STARS AND STRIPES, it would be little remembered in our day that the Native Americans who served in the American Expeditionary Forces along the Western Front were permitted to wear moccasins in place of the regulation trench boots.

"Ethnic pandering" is not a term that should come to mind; this was a high complement paid by their commanding officers for a well-respected prowess in battle. The following is a small portion from a larger article which is posted on "The Native American" page of this website.
