My father was one of those intrepid young men who volunteered their service as ambulance drivers in France before the United States entered WWI. So, I was delighted to see pictures and read in The Day Jan. 7 about the re-creation of one of those ambulances that he must have driven ("WWI ambulance receives call to duty").
Sadly, I was only 16 when my father died, and so I lost the opportunity in later years to quiz him on his experience. However, not too long ago I discovered that the American Field Service has a web site, "History of the American Field Service in France: 1920," which can be found if you Google, "American Field Service." This provides a unique insight into the lives of those volunteers. Readers, I believe, would find the contents of that site as fascinating as I have.
