Some pics

A US helmet with the 28th Division, "Bloody Bucket" painted on the side.  The 28th was a National Guard division from Pennsylvania, so the symbol is actually the "Pennsylvania Key Stone." Many US divisions had their troops paint their division symbols on their helmets. Most helmets I have seen have the symbol painted on the front. But all the 28th Division helmets I have seen have the symbol on the side...kind of like a shoulder patch.



The 32nd Division symbol...Michigan and Wisconsin National Guard.



Main street in Fismes, just after the battle.  This photo taken from a book scan of the 110th Infantry Regiment history, published in 1920. Just after the war, many units published histories.  Many of these are available online through Google books, or the Internet Archive (archive.org).



US Troops in Fismes, days after the Armistice (November, 1918). This photo from the US National Archives.  NARA has many documents, pictures and videos of WWI online.

Organizations and Equipment / Re: DOD IG Open Issues Report
« Last post by trailrunner on August 21, 2018, 08:10:21 PM »
I briefly worked at the DoD IG. As I was leaving, we were just starting to track the resolution to our prior recommendations across all projects.  Donít put too much stock in the numbers. There is a wide range of investigations and corresponding recommendations, and there is some judgement in deciding if a recommendation had been implemented.

Organizations and Equipment / DOD IG Open Issues Report
« Last post by OJsDad on August 21, 2018, 04:13:48 PM »
Last year, the DOD IG published a compendium on issues that the IGs office had identified, but had not been closed, i.e. corrected.  This year, they have produced an updated compendium.  This is something they plan on doing every year going forward. 

https://media.defense.gov/2018/Aug/06/2001950876/-1/-1/1/2018%20COMPENDIUM.PDF

Last year there were 1,298 recommendations.  DOD closed 421.

This year, there are 1,558 recommendations.  It will be intersting to see how many they close this year.
