Unless there's some specific reason why you can't disclose your Great Grandfather's name, perhaps it would be easier to give his full name (first, middle, last) and let's see what we can find that way. Sometimes, it's easier to find information with a name. Thanks...

I couldn't find any evidence of Earl Eugene Bright serving on the Mexican Border. Doesn't mean he didn't...just couldn't find anything. Here's what I did find on him.

While universally known as the "Lost Battalion", this force actually consisted of companies from 4 different battalions- A, B, C Companies of the 1st Battalion 308th Infantry Regiment( 1-308th Inf); E,G, H companies of the 2nd Battalion 308th Infantry (2-308th Inf); K Company of the 3rd Battalion of the 307th Infantry Regiment (3-307th Inf); and C, D Companies of the 306th Machine Gun Battalion. All of these companies belonged to the 154th Infantry Brigade of the 77th Infantry Division and with a strength of approximately 545 men was a battalion-sized force. Major Whittlesey was the battalion commander of 1-308th Inf, the senior officer present and he assumed command of the entire force once he realized it was surrounded.
Perhaps he was serving with Company B of the 308th on October 1 & 2 1918

Thank you so much for the information. I am mainly interested if he was in the 77th 308th on Oct 1. I will have to do some research because the 42d I think might have been in training elsewhere
