Re: 372nd Infantry WW1 capsule history

Henri Goybet
from France

I would like to tell you that my great Grand Father was General Goybet . He commanded the famous "Red Hand" unit .

I would like to tell you also he was very proud to fight the German with the 371 and 372 st Units .

Blacks soldiers were very good fighters and they helped in "Champagne" to get the victory .

General Goybet after the war went on to correspond with some of the men who composed the "Red unit".

He received the Distinguished Service Medal by General Persing .

this honor belong to his troops .

They were very couragous soldiers and me too i am very proud they served under my great grand father's Division .

You , too , you can be proud of thoses men
that risked their life for freedom our nations

Friendly Henri Goybet
