Though I have not come across a picture of my grandfather yet on your site it was fulfilling to see a picture of Frank Hume as his signature is on the paper work appointing my grandfather a Sargent in France March 1918
My grandfather has the following on his gravestone:
Co. D, 4th Amm. TN.
He was born and died Mystic, CT. (1892-1957)
Do you have any information that may help me researching his service.
I believe your grandfather was a member of Co. D, 4th Ammunition Train, which was part of the 4th Division. If you can find out whether your grandfather was drafted it would help to confirm this. The 26th Division was primarily composed of National Guard volunteers from New England who went “Over There” in late September. The drafted National Army troops followed later including the 4th Division. Originally organized at Camp Greene in North Carolina, it included a unit designated as the 4th Ammunition Train. The 4th Division saw combat during both the St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne Offensives. Hope this helps.
