I have a panoramic photo of my grandfather's (William Von Ohlen) 18th Company, 5th battalion, 153rd brigade taken in 1918 by the "Pictorial News Company" in NY (Photo #915). I believe it was taken in Camp Dix in New Jersey, possibly between the late spring through early autumn of 1918 since the tree in the background had leaves on it. I also found some information that substantiates this company:
ENLISTED May 15, 1917, in the O.T.C., and trained at Madison Barracks. Graduated as Captain of Infantry Aug. 15. Assigned to Camp Dix, N.J., and attached to the 311th Infantry. Assigned in Sept. to the 153rd Depot Brigade, commanding Company 18, 5th Battalion, 153rd Depot Brigade. From June to Sept., 1919, on special duty in charge of Camp Dix Casual Detachment. Assigned in Sept., 1918, to Company 55, 15th Battalion, 153rd Depot Brigade. Discharged from the service as Captain Dec. 21, 1918.
