logo flags lion 10AUG16 BKGRD FOR WEBSITE CopyFOREIGN-BORN MEN WHO SERVED AS AMERICAN SOLDIERS, many of whom were not citizens of the United States, was a fairly common occurrence during the First World War. That was certainly the same case with the U.S. 332nd Infantry Regiment. There were U.S. doughboys in the 332nd who were born in Denmark, England, Poland, Germany, Turkey/Syria, Russia, Sweden, Austria-Hungary, Greece, and Ireland.  

OF SPECIAL INTEREST, THOUGH, ARE THOSE MEN WHO WERE BORN IN ITALY, immigrated to the U.S. and ably served as American soldiers with the only U.S. military combat unit on the Italian Front in WWI — they had the distinct honor to serve and fight in their homeland alongside their fellow countrymen and the Allies.  When they registered for the draft in June, 1917, most of these Italian-born men who eventually became 332nd Infantry soldiers were not U.S. citizens; some indicated that they had declared their intention or filed the “First Papers” to apply for American citizenship – many may have served their entire tour of duty in the U.S. Army as Italian citizens. A few of them had had prior military service in either Italy or the United States.


The following list of men who were born in Italy and served as U.S. soldiers in the 332nd Infantry and the 331st Field Hospital on the Italian Front during WWI was compiled mainly from:

•  The Official Roster of Ohio Soldiers, Sailors And Marines In the World War, 1917-18

•  Roster in the 332nd Infantry Association’s booklet History of the 332nd Infantry (for the1929 reunion)
  332nd Infantry Company D: The company log from September 7th, 1917 to May 2nd, 1919
  History of Company E, 332nd Infantry from Departure Overseas to Return and Discharge
  Company "I", 332nd Infantry in the great World War
  History of Company K: Work of Company K, 332nd United States Infantry in the great war
  Chronology of the Machine Gun Company, 332nd Infantry
  Printed roster of Co. L, 332d Infantry

Since some of the 332nd Infantry’s soldiers entered service from states other than Ohio, there may have been more Italian-born American soldiers who served in Wallace's Circus on the WWI Italian Front who are, regrettably, not included here.

Additionally, there were many of  the 332nd Infantry's soldiers who were either first-generation (U.S.-born) Italian-Americans or of  Italian heritage whose families had been established in the United States for generations.
