Hello, It is 12/31/12 and I don't know if you still actively add to this site, but I just wanted to thank you for all of your terrific work. It is 2:45 am and I keep reading all the info. and links, and it is just fantastic. My grandfather was in the 82nd division, Mobile Veterinary Unit 307. I don't have any photos or stories. He said he couldn't write much because the letters were censored.

This has been so interesting. The fact that armies have always relied on animals, horses and mules in great numbers, yet there are very few written memories of their participations or the amazing work of the few who looked after them when they were sick or wounded. Let's hope one day war will not be necessary as it is not always necessary to take unfortunate animals, in any great numbers, to war now.

I have a panoramic photo of the 347th Remount Squadron, taken in 1918 at Camp Joseph E. Johnston in Florida. I believe that it came from my wife's family but I am not sure which relative would be in it. I'm wondering if you would know where I might find a roster for this unit.
I have photographed and made a digital copy of the photo (153 MB opened and 27.3 MB compressed). I can send you a smaller version if you are interested.

My mother was a surgical nurse with the AEF in France during WW1. When stationed in Baccarat, she and the other nurses in her unit were entertained by officers of the 305th Infantry, 77th Division, who took them on moonlight horseback rides into the French countryside. I would like to know more about these men and how they got these horses: Lt. Warren S. Barlow, Lt. Edgerly W. Austin, Cpl. Clarence Rhebergen, Capt. Ross A. Greenwood---veterinarian.

Great web site and history. I need your assistance to locate the member records of Veterans of WWI of USA, Barracks No. 355, Auxillary. This information was contained to the obituary of my great aunt Mary Belle (Bolton) Hissrich whereby she was born 1884 and atttended Unv. of Nebraska (unknown course of study). I was hoping Barrack 355 records would tell me if she served in WWI (doubful) or being in support of someone I would like to identify. She may have lived in West Palm Beach Florida and attended Southern Bapist Church same location. When I typed in the above unit I was directed to your website. I would appreciate any help your can provide. Thank you, Dan Bolton, firstname.lastname@example.org

I have my great grand fathers WW1 uniform. He was with the Army Vetrinary Corps as a Farrier. The Uniform includes the trousers, leg wraps, jacket, overcoat, helmet, wool hat and dog tags. The patch on the jacket is brown with a horseshoe and the collar pins are US and Medical Insignia. I have not seen any pictures of the uniforms on your site so I thought I would mention it and see if you are interested in pictures.

I have been very pleased to finally discover the WWI service for my Grandfather, George Franklin Edwards of Burlington, Arkansas. He is listed in the roster for Enlisted Men Base Veterinary Hospital No. 2 as the 27th name. I wonder if there is a possible way to identify the visible soldiers in the formation shown in the picture showing Hospital No. 2 soldiers? For your added information, my Grandfather was born in October of 1889 in Burlington, AR, and died February 19, 1928 in Burlington, AR. I do have a photo of him in uniform that I will attempt to send, if desired.

MESSAGE FROM THE WEBMASTER
To all you who have posted on this guestbook and to you all my friends for taking the time and honoring the memory of the men and women of the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps, Remount Service and Cavalry and the these units of all nations. I have been very busy working on a project out at Fort Ord, California for the last two years where we have intact a complete WW2 Series 700 Station Veterinary Hospital and 12 artillery and cavalry stables with there blacksmith shops.
The cavalry stables with their blacksmith shops are in EXTREME DANGER of being torn down. They are located on the California State University, Monterey Bay and all efforts have failed to convince the university to save any part of them. It has been a real heartbreaker for me. We are working with the City of Marina, California where the station Veterinary hospital is located, there is a growing movement by the city and the community to save and hopefully preserve it. Look at my Website on the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital to stay up-to-date on what is happening. After two years of working on this project I am again refocusing on my love and passion The Veterinary Corps during WW1 Website. I continue to learn the many hiding places and with the assistance of Dr. Sanders Marble Historian, Office of Medical History, Office of The Surgeon General we are recovering a lot of great information. I will be posting a very large amount of material in the coming months and changing the format to make it easier to read.
Please continue to email me information and pictures. We do not make a dime off this Website in anyway and it is our love for the veterinary corps, remount service and cavalry that continues to drive us. It is this core that has made this Website unique. Thank you for your posting; it is what helps keeping us going. Please consider joining the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps Preservation Group as we continue to forge ahead. One last note, I do spend my summers at my home in Alaska and during this time I am not always connected online. But, please do not let this stop the corresponding; as soon as I can I will get back to you.
Sincerely and respectively yours

This website is fantastic and pays honor to the Veterinary Corps during a period of War in our history that was very hard to deal with. I was The Stable Sgt. (11B, 91T, 91B-V1, 9 yrs Active Hon. Svc.) for the Caisson Platoon, 3d US INF, TOG -(71-74). CWO4, John McKinney was the last Cavalry trained Platoon Leader for the Caissons and I was his last Stable Sgt. He taught me so many things relating to our cavalry past. I saw a horses' tail cut straight accross like contemporary jumpers the other day in the military media; Mr. McKinney saw that once in the Caissons that I knew...he made the Trooper strip and groom the tail back to natural saying this isn't how the Cavalry manual instructs a Trooper how to groom a tail...I miss "The 3d Herd"

My father was in 3rd company Ft. Lee and then was sent to 9th Hospital 701 APO. I know this from his "Manual for Stable Sergeants" hand book 1917 which must have been in his possession at the time. The day of his departure to France they gave him his citizenship papers. Prior to the time at Camp Lee he was a ranch hand in Wyoming. He came from Invernes, Scotland at age 17.

My grandfather, Daniel A. Overby, served in WWI.
His discharge certificate states that he was demobilized from the Quartermaster's Detachment, 306th Auxillery Remount Depot, January 1919.
In addition, I have two pictures with him wearing his uniform. On the back of one of the pictures is the stamp:
Daniel A. Overby, Wagon Company 306, U.S.A.
This stamp has the corps or division symbol surrounded by his name and unit. The stamp, professionally done, is in blue ink.
I will have to examine the picutres and see what type of insignia is on the collar brass as well take a closer look and see if he has a patch on his sleeve.
Not sure if there is a connection to the U.S.A. Veterinary Corps.

My name is Mike and my Great-Grandfather was 2nd Lt. Wimer H. Fitch of the Auxiliary Remount Depot No. 316. I have 2 pictures that I would be of great interest to you. The first is a panoramic picture of the entire auxiliary. It was taken May 11th, 1918 at Camp Gordon, Georgia, by Francis E. Price. The second picture is of the Commanding Officer's and Staff for the same group, there are 16 gentlemen in this photo. The pictures are quite magnificent; there are hundreds of men (in the first), at least 200 horses hooked to 50 wagons. If I can find a way to copy this 36" x 8" photo, I will get it to you.

Hi, I am trying to find out some information about my grandfather, Fred Thibeault. I don't think that his legal name was Fred, my dad doesn't even know what it was. We have a unit picture from WWI that is labeled Waggoner Veterinary Hospital #1. The picture I always remember seeing of my grandfather is one of him in uniform with a goat. I have enjoyed reading your site and have gain much information about the veterinary units in WWI. My grandfather lived in Somerset, MA, but I am unable to find any trace of him in birth certificates or veterans' listings. I would greatly appreciate any information you might have which would show that my grandfather was actually in this unit. Sometimes my father feels as if his father were a ghost.

I didn't even realize what the information meant until I saw your website. I have very little knowledge about my grandfather's service during WWI, just a picture or two, but none with horses.

They have posted a link to this website on their website and this is a great honor. You will find the link on their website under “External History Links and then click on World War 1 Historyö
Note: Also for those that have tried to sign the guestbook but were not able, I am sorry but Rootsweb made a change in the address code that caused the problem.

Very informative web site. Wish I had discovered it before I produced my documentary, All The King's Horses. You May be interested in checking. www.horsedocumentary .com. which explains the story of the ANZAC horses. During WW1 while our infantry served in France, the New Zealand Mounted Rifles and Australian Light Horse served in Egypt and Palestine. Of the ten thousand horses that left New Zealand only one returned. There is a lot wonderful photos and archival film with accompaning story on my DVD. Both my grandfathers served in the Mounted Rifles and I believe their stories and those of all soldiers who gave their freedom and in many cases their lives mus be told. Well done on such a great site. Regards Paul Sanderson.

They returned to LeMans, France, then sailed from Brest, France to Hoboken, N.J..

I have recently came across some pictures of the 308th field remount squadron. One is similar to the one you have of the 306th and the other one I have is when they come back home in June. I have no personal connection to these pictures. I just pulled a trunk out of a barn before it was bulldozed and found them. To me they are an interesting pice of history. But if I just hold them then what good is it doing for other people to enjoy. Please give me ideas on what to do with them.

In Sept.1917, at the Camp Lee Cantonment, the Aux. Remount Depot no. 305 was established,with 105 men under Capt. Malbon Richardson. This was the largest animal training and conditioning station in its section of the U.S. It served as a receiving and distribution depot for all horses and mules purchased by the Govt. in a huge district extending westward to Kansas City Mo.Expanded in March with Maj. W.A.Austin in command. The depots animal population was normally 8000 horses and 2000 mules. After being classified they were branded for use as Arty,Cav.,Transport,pack and lead animals. After being held for 6 wks, were then issued to troops or shipment to ports.(pages 116-117 History of the Eightieth Division A.E.F. In World War 1).
A Veterinary Training School also opened at Camp Lee in early May(1918) with one thousand six hundred white and Negro enlisted men from every section of the U.S. as students. Lt. Col. Edward A. Sturgess from the 155th Depot Brigade 80th Div. was appointed commandant. The students were housed in 400 tents pending completion of 52 buildings.(Page 131 of the History)From your above listings a great many men were trained here. The 80th Div. started their embarkation to France in late May 1918. The Training school remained at Camp Lee after the 80th departed. The History indicates the 37th Nat'l guard Div. came to Camp Lee after the 80th left.
Descendant of 80th Division Veterans.

Thank you so much for the correction on what I thought was a Remount Depot patch (2nd army patch with "RD"). I welcome your correction along with anyone else who can help us out. I am by no means an expert in these fields and it is because of the interest in my grandfather and lack of information in these fields that this website was created. It is those that are posting their information that make this website what it is and once more I extend my request for help and information. Together we will honor the memory of those that served in the Corps dealing with horses in WW1. I am looking for help in the new addition to the Cavalry units to the website please contact me if you can help out the website in anyway.

Congratulations on a wonderful job. This website is long overdue as is the story of the cavalry,remount and veterinary corp.
Ihave been a collector of uniforms, photos and equipments of these units for more then 20 years,if you ever are in New Jersey please contact me for a look at my collection.recent research has shown that the 2nd army patch with "RD"is replacement depot,not remount depot as thoughtby collectors.
The majority of these men wore no specialized insignia at all making any custom insignia that much more rare.
Goodluck, and again great job!

I love your website. My husband is in the vet corps and I collect vet corps items. I am not sure if I have any info that you do not already have. I do have a shabrique badge. They were pinned on the officer's saddle blanket. I don't know if they were used after the war. I could send you a picture for your site. It is like the vet corps insignia just much larger.

Great contribution, thanks for all of your dedicated efforts. I have a pen and ink sketch 5' x 12' signed by D.C.Hite 1919. The script on the sketch "The 18th Vets in action at their delousing station. Sougy (Nievre) France." The sketch surfaced at Petaluma, CA a few yeras ago. I liked it so had it framed. Jack Barry

An impressive site! My great uncle, George Rogers from Dover, Kent, served in the Veterinary Corps in WW1.
I have a photo of him in uniform but little else.
I think he died in 1932.Would like to know more about his military service etc.

I would like to thank those of you who have signed my Guestbook, it helps in keeping me going building this website that has taken a lot of my time. A special thanks to those who unselfishly have shared their family pictures, roster and other very special treasures. It is these things that really make this website and help us to get a better picture of the Veterinary Corps during WW1. You will find no copy protection on this website. We all freely want to share with you. Information is very scarce in this field and I still have many wonderful things to share with you. Please check back very once in a while
I thank you with all of my heart

Hi, first I like to say that this is a great site. Love the info.
I am doing research for a gentlemen whose great grandfathter was in the 3rd cavarly from July 1918-July 1919. I don't know how to tell if he was part of the Veterinary Corps. I looked at muster rolls, but they did not say anything. Thank you for your time.

What a great website, thank you very much! I never really understood how the Veterinary Corps, Remount stations were a part of the Quartermaster Corps in the beginning of the war and how they were all related.

I have been doing my family history and have found my great uncle John Edward Jarrell in the queant british war graves in france. I managed to get a picture of his grave and I found that there was a second soldier in the same grave. His name was Bertram Palfrey and he died in 1918. when i have looked at his record it says he was in the 5th battalion seaforth highlanders but he also served in the AVC for a while. I was wondering if there was a database anywhere with names of ww1 soldiers who served in the AVC. Hope you can help as I am curious. Lynda

I LIKE YOUR SITE. I AM WORKING ON A BOOK ON THE 82D IN WW1 AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW THE MEDICAL AND VET PERSONNEL WERE INTEGRATED INTO THE 307TH SANITARY TRAIN AND THEN BROKEN DOWN THROUGHOUT THE DIVISION. THE PHOTO POSTED OF THE PATCH WITH THE HORSESHOE AND THE BLACK CAT IS FOR THE 13TH DIVISION, WHICH FORMED UP IN THE STATES BUT NEVER SHIPPED OVERSEAS. I HAVE A UNIFORM WITH THAT PATCH. I WILL SEND YOU A PHOTO. ANY INFO OR DIRECTION YOU COULD POINT ME TO FOR RESEARCHING WHAT THE VETERNARIAN'S DAY TO DAY WAS WOULD BE HELPFUL. THANKS, DAVID

My Grandfather, William A. English, Pvt 15th Vet Hosp was gassed and had ribs broken while assigned in France. He died from lung problems when my father was six and we do not know much about him or where he served in France. I have an Intermediate SOS patch from his uniform and a few mementos. Would you like to see the patch? If you have any information on where the 15th served I would be grateful.

Really a great web site even the lay person can view and understand the impact the horse gave us in WW-I. Can you please help me. I am member of Kokosing Mounted Search and Rescue and of such we are on the lookout for modes of transportation for inconpasitated victims. Somewhere I saw a stretcher on on house, but I can't seem to find it now. I believe the photo was taken in 1918. With your vast resourses, could you lead me in the right direction.

I came upon your web site by accident,it's the first one that I have seen with so much detail about the Veterinary Corps.My grandfather Robert Pearse served in the V Corps but died within 6 months of joining them, I understand that he was a groom when he lived in Carmarthenshire. I will gather the information that I have & forward it to you @ a later date, Christmas is nearly upon us and I will not have enough time to dedicate myself to the task.You have rekindled my interest, in trying to fill in the gaps of my Family Tree, on my Fathers side of the Family.Best Wishes Thelma Irving (Shrewsbury Shropshire UK.)

What a great website!!! Thank you so much It has been very hard to find information on the Veterinary Corps during WW1. I enjoyed reading about your grandfather at Veterinary Hospital No 18 and I really enjoyed the pictures of the hospital.

My grandfather was in the Veterinary Corps in France at Veterinary Corps Hospital No 18 and I found your website fascinating! Thank you so much, I am thankful someone has finally written something about the Veterinary Corps in WW1. There is a lot of information that I have never seen in my long research on the Veterinary Corps. The ship list is amazing!
