We also located the Records of the 1st Through 338th and the 559th Infantry Regiment, 1/1/1916 - 12/31/1921 in the Records of U.S. Regular Army Mobile Units (Record Group 391) that includes files of the 30th Infantry Regiment. In addition, we located the Lists of Outgoing Passengers, 1917 - 1938 and the Lists of Incoming Passengers, 1917 - 1938 in the Records of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) that include the USS Manchuria for the outgoing transport to France and the USS Floridian for the incoming troop transport to New Jersey. Lastly, we located the Correspondence Relating to American Prisoners of War in Germany, 1918 - 1919 in Record Group 120 that may include POW information about Van Fleming. For access to and/or copies of these files, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
