Undated photo of Domèvre en Haye, France. Appears to be post World War 1. Rubble has been cleared from the streets and vegetation has returned.

My grandfather Philip Lovetere served in Company C, 1st Battalion, 64th Infantry Regiment, 14th Infantry Brigade of the 7th Infantry Division.

In late October, 1918, the 7th Division was in reserve behind the front. On November 8, 1918, the 7th Division was ordered to return to the front for a resumption of the offensive against the Germans.

By November 10, the 64th Regiment had reached Domèvre en Haye, France. On the morning of November 11 they were ordered to halt in anticipation of the armistice to begin a few hours later at 11 am.
