Doughboys (132-205)

by sbattles | October 5th, 2010

The veterans from WWI certainly received a different treatment than those from the Civil and Revolutionary War. When they returned home they were honored and received  back into the communities, for the most part.

WWI also taught the US “the importance of national unity” (p. 200) as Roosevelt put it. The soldiers didn’t necessarily get all the benefits they were supposed to, but it was definitely better than all the previous wars.¬† And again as the book says “This time the results were truly revolutionary”. (p. 205) The veterans from WWI were able to make an impact on the nation and change it forever for all posterity.
