Army Mexican Service Medal number ID Help

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I just picked up an Army Mexican Service Medal No. 8460. Would anyone be able to help with IDing the recipient? I had a great deal of success in research with my last Medal i asked for an ID on, and would greatly appreciate help to get this project started too. Thank you in advance!!

Actually Bill is correct, marked the line below it in haste.... Obviously wasn't intentional.

 

No. 8460: PFC F. Brown, Battery B, 6th Field Artillery

Note that it was Alex Arch with Battery "C" of the 6th that pulled the lanyard for the "First Shot" of the AEF in WWI
