Colonel Gregory Fontenot to Speak at Cantigny
Book profiles 1st Infantry Division during transformational period through Desert Storm
The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park welcomes Colonel Gregory Fontenot, U.S. Army (Ret.), on Wednesday, November 1. He will discuss “The 1st Infantry Division and the U.S. Army Transformed,” a narrative history of the “Big Red One” from 1970 through the Operation Desert Storm victory celebration in 1991.
Published in June and coinciding with the 100th anniversary of 1st Infantry Division’s formation, Fontenot’s book closes a gap in the historiography of the late Cold War U.S.
The free presentation inside the Cantigny Visitors Center begins at 7:30 pm. Parking also is complimentary.
