Dear Ms. Carita,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Chief Surgeon files [120.7.7] in the Records of the American Expeditionary Forces (World War I) (Record Group 120) and located a series titled Records of Medical Units with the Second Army, 1917 - 1918 (NM-91 926) that contain information about ambulance units. And in the U.S. Army Ambulance Service with the French Army section there are 10 additional series regarding ambulance units.
We also located records pertaining to ambulance units in the American National Red Cross (ANRC) collection Central Decimal Files, 1881 - 1982 filed under “591.2”; in the Richard Norton (NORTN) Personal Papers Relating to the American Volunteer Motor-Ambulance Corps, 1914 - 1918; and in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) in a series titled Medical Unit Records, 1917 - 1925 (NM-20 280).
All of these records are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2). Please contact them if you have a specific unit of interest via email at email@example.com. Otherwise, please consider visiting them in person. RDT2 is located at 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus.
