Re: 372nd Infantry WW1 capsule history
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
Friendly Henri Goybet
