Documenting Your Life with ADB Designs

Indelibly tied to Americans, “Doughboys” became the most enduring nickname for the troops of General John Pershing’s American Expeditionary Forces, who traversed the Atlantic to join war weary Allied armies fighting on the Western Front in World War I.
[From the web page:]

“The Great War”, as WWI was known at the time, marked the first time in history the United States sent soldiers abroad to defend foreign soil. Over 4.7 million men and women served in the regular U.S. forces, national guard units, and draft units with about 2.8 million serving overseas. There were 53,402 killed in action, 63,114 deaths from disease and other causes, and about 205,000 wounded.

I encourage you to check out these sites as you research your ancestors who either participated in WWI or were effected by the war.

Q101 (prompt)
Scrap about those family members who participated in the "Great War". Scrap about family life while loved ones were away fighting. Scrap about today's men & women in uniform or veterans from any prior wars.

I have a beautiful cluster for you, made by my Creative Team member, Dana. Just click on the preview to go to my store.


Here are the previews from Doughboy and some layouts made with the collection to provide you some inspiration.

Happy scrapping,
