Would anyone know what unit held a number 106 in the Florid National Guard?

Patches,

I believe that the Florida disk is for the 106th Sanitary Train. It appears that they were a part of the 31st "Dixie" Division in WWI.  https://www.floridam...ems/show/140215

Thank You Allan, you're answer lead me to check the WWI OOB 31st Div, the support units of the division were indeed numbered 106. Not sure which other ones were of the Florida National Guard, as like most NG Divisions, had units in them from various states located near them, in example the division's 106th Engineer Regiment was of the Mississippi NG.
