As a teacher myself, I thought he did a great job of meeting his audience on their terms and making it a memorable lesson, and the kids were incredibly polite and well-behaved. Parents have given up on teaching their kids manners, right? We ended with several people saying, spontaneously, “God Bless America.” And then we walked home together, many of us having made new friends. Until the “doughboys” proved their mettle in combat, there was pressure from our Allies to use American troops as fill-ins for their troops lost in battle.
In the middle of the esplanade at the center of the town of Cantigny stands a large bronze sculpture of a 28th Infantry Regiment Black Lion of Cantigny Doughboy sculpted by Stephen Spears and dedicated on . The doughboy is mounted on a black stone pedestal and commemorates the first battle American forces fought and won in Europe during World War I.
Unless there was something wrong with you, you played football.
My freshman year, a new kid, a junior named Jim Fraser, arrived at school, and he turned out for soccer.
The rest of the First Division, and French aircraft, artillery, tanks and flamethrowers, supported the attack.
The seizure and defense of Cantigny against determined German opposition proved the worth of the American soldier and bolstered allied morale at a critical time.
Almost 900 members of the regiment were killed or wounded during the four-day battle.
The regiment earned the French Croix de Guerre with Palm and the designation "The Lions of Cantigny".
He made the wise decision, and decided to play football. He was, so far as I’m concerned, the first soccer-style kicker in the US (that was 1953). In his three years in Denver, he made the Pro Bowl as a punter, averaging 44.1 yards per kick. A present-day "James" (not Jim - ever notice that parents don’t use nicknames anymore?
) Fraser would go home and tell his parents what had happened, and they would hire a lawyer, who would contact the Headmaster, who would fire the coach and expel the Lassen twins. And bring in an expert to talk to the remaining students about the horrors of bullying.
