World War One Unit Histories
Unit Histories of World War I was often the collaboration of a large number of officers and men who prepared and compiled in narrative form and account of the activities and operations that the unit undertook from formation to the end of the war. Most of the Regimental Histories contain rosters of all men for each company that comprised that infantry regiment.

We have met to honor the memory of the officers and enlisted men of one of the regiments of the national army who gave their all at the call of their country. This regiment, the 351st Infantry, was organized in September, 1917, from men selected mainly from the western counties of the great state of Iowa, but later, as changes occurred by detachments being sent to other divisions, the vacancies were filled with men from Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and North Dakota.
The main units of that comprise the 88th Division: 337th Machine Gun Battalion, 175th Infantry, 349th Infantry, 350th Infantry, 338th Machine Gun Battalion, and various units of the 313th. Comprised mostly of men from the Upper Midwest, Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota.
