A Tribute to the 32nd Division in WWI

A couple of months ago, I received a call from Todd Touton. Todd is the son of William F. Touton, a pilot with the 545th Bomb Squadron of the 384th Bomb Group. Todd and I collaborated on the video, “A Tribute to the 384th Bomb Group in WWII.” I created the video from photos in my dad’s (George Edwin Farrar, 544th Bomb Squad of the 384th) personal collection and from the vast collection of photos from the 384th Bomb Group’s photo gallery. Todd provided the music, a song named “Damn Yankee,” which he co-wrote with Evan Wallach, and performs on the video.

Todd’s grandfather, Forrest C. Touton, fought in WWI. He was with the 128th Infantry of the 32nd Division.

Todd wanted me to help him create a video with a number of WWI photos he had collected from the National Archive in Washington, DC and the State Historical Society Collection in Madison, Wisconsin along with several from his grandfather’s personal collection. And he and Evan had a song named “Doughboys” that he wanted to set it all to music with.

The video, “A Tribute to the 32nd Division in WWI,” is finally finished and I uploaded it to YouTube earlier this week. If you want to take a little break from WWII history with me to go back a few years to WWI, please take a look. “A Tribute to the 32nd Division in WWI” can be viewed here.

And if you’d like to see “A Tribute to the 384th Bomb Group in WWII,” you can see that one here.
