Raymond Willard Tinker of the 4786th company was one man in the army during the 2 World War. I would like to know more about this man and the men that served with him to share stories with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. This information is a great history lesson. I believe anyone who serves their country should be remembered by others. I thank God for every single person and the sacrifices they made and are making for me and my families FREEDOM!

Your questions can be answered after you clarify them a bit. 1. What "Imperialist League"? 2. US Soldiers? This indicates that NO naval units are involved and NO aircraft are involved; as Airmen and Sailors are not soldiers. It also indicates that NO US Marines are involved. This must strictly be a US Army operation. 3. What "expansionist war"? Is the US trying to obtain more over-seas territory, like in the war against Spain in 1898, when the US obtained the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico?
