During World War I, General Goybet commanded the French 157th Red Hand Division which consisted of the French 333rd infantry regiment and the American 371st and 372 regiments. The two African-American regiments fought bravely and were awarded the Croix de Guerre, and several men received both the French Legion of Honor and the American Distinguished Service Cross. Freddie Stowers of the 371st was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. The 372nd was one of the oldest African-American units in the country dating back to the Civil War with a lineage including the Monumental City Guards and the First Separate Company. The General's flag has red/white/red stripes whereas the Division flag has blue/white/red stripes.
