    SECOND INFANTRY DIVISION
    Along with other units of the 2nd Infantry Division cited for outstanding performance in the Meuse-Argonne and the Aisne-Marne campaigns, the 15th FA Regiment received three awards of the French Croix de Guerre with Palm. Additionally, each member of the Regiment was authorized to wear the Fourragere in the colors of the Croix de Guerre. After the Armistice in November 1918, the 15th FA Regiment remained as part of the Army of Occupation in Germany until the summer of 1919. Returning to the United States in August 1919, the 15th FA Regiment took up permanent residence at Fort Sam Houston, Texas

    Outstanding find!
    It is unusual to find something like that which hasn't been messed about by kids playing "dressing up" or has been hidden in a loft and heavily munched by moths etc. A brilliant piece of history
