Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!  And, as Patrick Young wrote for Citizen Path writes, remember the fallen immigrants who fought for the United States.  Here are two fun facts that I did not know:

"During World War I, immigrants joined the army in such large numbers that a Statue of Liberty Division was organized and sent to France. Many of its soldiers were immigrants. In fact, there were so many Italians in the unit that German troops opposite them thought that part of the Italian army had been moved to France. As during the Civil War, orders were given in the native languages of the immigrant soldiers."
