Note:

The Pennsylvania National Guard troops are documented as being in El Paso, Texas in 1917 (Metz, Leon Fort Bliss 1981). These men were most likely out of the 6th Infantry Regiment. Metz writes that the Pennsylvania Guard troop took up 30 railroad cars upon their departure from El Paso (Metz, Leon Fort Bliss 1981 pg. 84). At the time Fort Bliss, Texas was made up of many camps however this camp was not identified.
