General John J. Pershing was the Commander of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I and led the United States, along with our Allies, to victory in that war. His contribution to American military preparedness in the future was also very significant. Pershing created the first modern American army in France during 1917-1918 in spite of great difficulties. He developed the organizations, the training methods and the leaders that carried over to World War II. His influence on military leaders of the caliber of Douglas MacArthur, George C. Marshall and George S. Patton, Jr. was substantial. All of these elements combined played an important part in our successful conclusion of the Second World War and assured Pershing a place in history as a part of that triumph.
