Description:

The 'eager' young men went abroad as early as 1915 to volunteer as ambulance drivers with the American Field Service. The 'willing' were career soldiers who were called up immediately when war was declared. The 'reluctant' were part of the 2.8 million men called up through the draft, they were young men, and reported for duty when asked, in what would be an unforgettable introduction to war. Members free, museum admission.
