Trucking to the Trenches.

The TMU units.  As soon as the United States had entered the war as a combatant, the head of the French Army Automobile Service requested that the AFS help with combat drivers---- that is, men who would drive their supply trucks carrying munitions and troops.  This the AFS gladly did, although the work did not have the glamor and appeal of ambulance work.  The AFS truckers----"camionneurs" in French--- were organized into TMU units (as opposed to the SSU ambulance ones).
