Dear Kerry Norman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Records of Field Artillery Regiments Numbers 1 through 351, 1912 - 1930 in the Records of U.S. Regular Army Mobile Units (Record Group 391) that includes the 102nd Field Artillery Regiment during WWI. For more information, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com. We were unable to locate specific records of Battalion E. Records of lower echelon units sometimes were incorporated into the files of the regiment.
