When he was 15, Allison J. Barnett enlisted as a buck private in the Kentucky National Guard. Six years later, in 1913, he was discharged a sergeant. Thirty-one more years: He's a 2-star general and leads the 70th from Forbach on. In between he had a broad military career. When the first World War began, he reenlisted and was commissioned a captain in the 3rd Kentucky Infantry. After three years of service, he went into the regular Army as a lieutenant; that in 1920. In France he was an infantry company commander and held various divisional staff posts. In the States he served at the Field Artillery School and with the Department of Experiment at the Infantry School at Fort Benning. After two years in the Philippines he came back to graduate from the Command and General Staff School and the Air Corps Tactical School. In mid-'41 he was assigned to the Army Air Force but with the outbreak of WW2 he returned to the Infantry as assistant commander of the 93rd (Steel Helmet) Division which later fought at Bouganville in the Pacific. Just a year after Pearl Harbor he was sent to Noumea in New Caledonia as chief of staff of all Army forces in the South Pacific. There he served until he took over the 70th command at Leonard Wood in 1944. After combat he became CG of the 94th Division in Czechoslovakia and brought that outfit back to the States early in '46. He served with the First Army as its G-2, first at Fort Bragg and then at Governor's Island in New York Harbor. After suffering a massive heart attack, he died November 7, 1970.

* A Distinguished Service Medal was awarded by the War Department to Sereno E. Brett, Captain Infantry, United States Army Tank Corps, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished services as chief instructor of Tank Center, American Expeditionary Force. He organized and trained the 327th Bn. light tanks. Later as commander of the 325th Bn. light tanks he vigorously and skilfully led it in the St. Mihel offensive over a terrain rendered most difficult through four years of enemy entrenching. Succeeding to his command of the 1st Brigade Tank Corps #, in the Meuse-Argonne offensive, he ably, devotedly, and courageously commanded his brigade from Sept. 25 to Nov. 10, 1918; during this period of 46 days his brigade supported eight of the divisions of the 1st Army in 18 separate attacks.. By his brilliant professional attainments, technical ability, and unusual leadership he contributed in a marked manner to the success of the 1st Army and contributed to most conspicuous services to the American Expeditionary Forced in a position of great responsibility.
By order of the Secretary of War, John J. Pershing, General of the Armies, (Chief of Staff)

# Note that Sereno succeeded George Patton to the 1st brigade when Patton was seriously wounded.
