Cpl. Gerald Fitzgerald U.S. Army Veterinary Corps.

Grandfather Gerald Fitzgerald. 
Enlisted in the United States Army in 1917 at 26 years of age.

At times they were close to the front lines. Witnessed battles in France, Belgium and Germany.
Was with the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. as horses were a main source of transport during the war.
I remember seeing German Medals and misc. items when I was a kid in his attic. After some battles, they would come into possession of German Military Horses. He found items in saddle bags of captured animals.

Grandpa and Grandma Fitzgerald. Gentile souls. May they Rest in Peace.
