Title: WW1 Hackensack / Captain Harry Doremus
Post by: GeorgeHedges on April 14, 2018, 09:53:26 PM
This picture of Captain Harry B. Doremus was taken in September 1917 on arrival at the new Camp McClellan AL.  Captain Doremus was in command of Company G / 5 Infantry / New Jersey National Guard.  This unit would eventually become part of the 114th Infantry in the newly formed 29th Division.  A year later they would take part in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive bringing an end to the Great War.  Picture from the photo album of my great uncle 1st Sgt. George Hedges who served with Captain Doremus from 1916 ( Mexican Border Conflict ) until Captain Doremus was kia on October 27.1918
