My grandfather in-law was Private Bernard Burch of Wadena, Minnesota. He is seen at age 30 in this postcard image from 1919, fourth from the left of the first standing row.
These are the Headquarters Company band of the 53rd Infantry Regiment, Sixth Infantry Division, U.S. Army American Expeditionary Force. Each man was awarded a battle ribbon for the Meuse-Argonne offensive. Bernie was a snare drummer, but like the other bandsmen, he became a stretcher bearer during battles. According to the reverse of the card, the image was taken in Cauterets, France, in the Pyrenees, close to France's border with Spain.
Bernie and the boys toured France while awaiting their turn for passage home on the SS Leviathan. Bernie passed away in 1985.
