The person at NARA provided me with my Great Grand father Officer Commission Card which has lead me deeper into the 166th Infantry and 308th Infantry units and I was wondering if someone could help be decipher the hand writing.

  5. In talking with the family and the deeper I get into the research my family has found a picture of my Great Grandfather from the Great War. I am not sure when it was taken it has, but something is scribbled on it. Since the unit was in activated from the NG unit I understand why it is 4 G instead of the 166 G from the 42nd Div. Is there anywhere I can find these or replicas of them? I am designed a shadow box for him for the anniversary of WWI and a dedication to my Mom's side of the family. Thank you in advance.

  11. Would his serial number have anything to do with his service in the mexican punitive expedition it is 94092
  12. 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
