what united states first served as a general during world war 1?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
None of the above were Generals in WW1. Harry Truman served as a Captain during the war and Dwight Eisenhower was an aide to Douglas MacArthur and served as a Captain as well. Franklin Roosevelt never served in the military, but was the under- Secretary of the Navy. Richard Nixon was just a child on his parents farm and his parents were Quakers. J. Pershing was the commanding General of the American Expeditionary Forces during WW1.

None of those men was a General in World War One.
Dwight D. Eisenhower was a five-star General in World War Two.
During World War One, he rose to temporary Lieutenant Colonel in the National Army but never saw combat.
After the World War One, Eisenhower reverted to his regular rank of Captain (and was promoted to Major a few days later).
All four men were United States Presidents.
