    Seeking military records of grandfather in 1910

    Gayle Simmons Newbie

      Hi,  I am doing family research and would like to see if my grandfather served in the 6th Cavalry around 1910. I have his military records from WWI, but I have recently found a picture and some notes indicating that he also served in the Calvary along the Mexican border. After some research, I found that the 6th U.S. Cavalry was at Fort Des Moines, Iowa starting January 1910 and they did serve along the Mexican border. Can you tell me what form to start with? I don't know when he would have enlisted or been discharged. I just know he served around the age of 17 which would have been 1910. Thanks for any help.
