This picture was taken in Newport News Virginia when the 313th arrived home in the United States sometime in the middle of May 1919 Im not quite sure the exact date. You can see the ship they returned on the USS Zeppelin in the background. The picture is in order 1A-5A right to left. (Click on image to enlarge)


A photo of "D" battery I'm not sure of the location or date but it's possible this photo may have been taken at Camp Lee Virginia Where the regiment trained. The photograph is in order from right to left 1B-3B. Picture 3B overlaps picture 2B so I could get the few soldiers on the end. (Click on image to enlarge)


My great grandfather Cpl. Frank Milford Peirson; he was a non commissioned officer in "D" battery. Also with this photo I am unsure of the date or place where the picture was taken. (Click on image to enlarge)
