Captain Terry Photograph

This photograph of Captain Terry was taken right before the Battle of Meuse-Argonne. Terry entered this battle on October 8th and served until he was severely gassed on October 11th. At this point, Terry was second in command of the First Battalion of the 320th Infantry. It may have been taken before the battle to provide consolation to the captain’s family if he was to die. Behind this photograph is a letter that Terry wrote to his mother and father on October 7, 1918, which he sent with the photographs.
