My great-uncle's World War 1 story

The following pages relate the story of my great-uncle's service with the U.S. Army, the spotlight being on his time spent in the 2nd Division during World War 1.

His name was Albert P. Ringressey. He was a lieutenant in the 15th Field Artillery, 2nd Division, in World War 1. But his service started long before that world war and lasted well into the next. I know much less about Albert P. Ringressey's service than my father's World War 2 service. My greatest research tool is a frame of medals that were his. These provide campaign names and even specific battles that he participated in.
