2009 Memorial Day Service

Sunday May 24th at 2:00 PM

Washington Memorial Chapel

Valley Forge, PA

The Washington Memorial Chapel will once again graciously host our annual service and reunion. While the economy has made a difficult time for many of us please make the effort to attend this year. We are very pleased and honored to have Professor Edward Lengel as our speaker this year. Some of you may remember that Mr. Lengel had contacted the 314th for information a few years ago, while he was working on a book about the Meuse Argonne Offensive. His book, To Conquer Hell: The Meuse- Argonne, 1918 was released in 2008. It is the first in depth work done about the offensive and gives a very honest and informative view of what our fathers, grandfathers, and service people of our country endured.

Ed Lengel received his B.A. at George Mason University, and his M.A. and Ph.D. in history at the University of Virginia. Since 1996 he has worked with the Papers of George Washington documentary editing project at the University of Virginia, where he is now Professor and Senior Editor. He is the author of numerous books and articles, including General George Washington: A Military Life (Random House 2005) and To Conquer Hell: The Meuse Argonne, 1918 (Holt 2008). He is also the recipient, with the Washington Papers project, of the National Humanities Medal. Ed has also been interviewed on The History Channel and in The Washington Post. A native of Pennsylvania, Mr. Lengel grew up in Morgantown, PA. and traces family roots back to the 1730's in the Berks county area.

The title of Ed's talk is "America's Citizen Soldiers". He will also be bringing some of his books along for sale for those who are interested. This is a very rare opportunity for both the 314th and Ed to meet and share information- so please make an extra effort to attend this year and perhaps bring a memento or story about
