Pershing Rifles

#TodayIRemember General of the Armies John Joseph "Black Jack" Pershing, who died #OnThisDay in 1948.

Pershing was a general officer in the U.S. Armyy who led the American Expeditionary Forces in #WorldWarI. He is the only person to be promoted in his own lifetime to the highest rank ever held in the #USArmy—General of the Armies (a retroactive Congressional edict passed in 1976 promoted George Washington to the same rank but with higher seniority).

Pershing was regarded as a mentor by the generation of American generals who led the U.S. Army in Europe during #WorldWarII, including George C. Marshall, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Omar N. Bradley, and George S. Patton.

Pershing is laid to rest in Section 34, Grave S-19-LH.

Who are you remembering today?
