WORLD WAR ONE – 316th Field Artillery

 Newport News, VA after the end of World War One

Photo of World War 1 panorama 316th Field Artillery

World War One photo 316th F.A. A.E.F Jun 10th, 1919 Size: 8″ x 47″

“F.A.” stands for Field Artillery, and “A.E.F.” stands for American Expeditionary Forces.  Photo by Halliday Photo  On the photograph it is listed as “Photo #3917” These photos were taken at Newport News, Virginia on June 10th 1919, which was at the end of World War One when the soldiers were ready to be discharged from the Army.

All my research identifies these men as the “Fighting Wildcats” of the US Army’s 81st Division. First named the “Stonewall” Division, later nicknamed the “Wildcat Division”.  Their slogan was “Wildcats Never Quit”.  And their shoulder patch was a wildcat.
