Quote from: Facebookme: this is beautiful, but it doesn't make sense if this bike is in Washington. the US didn't enter WWI until 1917...Colleen: Basic training, and post preparations. They may not know what was to happed, but he was already in when it startedme: exxxcept the US took an extremely neutral stance on the part of Woodrow Wilson until 1917 when they FINALLY decided to enter. they sold arms to both sides, and really only got involved due to 1. political pressure from their allies and 2. some isolated terroristic incidents in the US on the part of Central spies. the US wouldn't have even had reason to start preparing their soldiers for it until late 1916-early 1917, as we didn't enter until April 6th of that year.perhaps the guy went off for training exercises onto a base beforehand, but that bike looks much too small for a man of a soldier's age.and upon further review, snopes reveals that the bike, being a 1950's model, was likely just abandoned there.sorry if i'm bursting a bubble, but when MASSIVE historical inaccuracies get passed around like this to people who don't know any better (or don't bother to check), it only further breeds the ignorance we have come to accept as a society standard.http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/bicycle.asp
