Grave Markers for Soldiers of the U.S. Army Spruce Squadrons of the First World War

Spruce Soldiers with Horses

As people have sent me e-mail asking about their relatives who were Spruce Soldiers, several have shared images of the grave markers for these individuals. In addition, several grave marker enthusiasts and cemetery managers have asked about the Spruce units mentioned on the markers they have seen.

This page has a selection of these photos, and includes information pointers about the Spruce units to which these men belonged in 1918. The photos were taken by the original correspondents, and are their sole work. (I made modifications to some of the images with GIMP, to make them appear better on this webpage. These enhancements to the images are intended to make the inscriptions more readable.)
