Connie,
Your speaking of World War I. The US entered in 1917 and our force under Gen.
John Pershing was called the American Expeditionary Force or the AEF. In the
1920s and 1930s it was called the World War. It is also called by some
historians the 1914-1918 War.
The man your researching would have been in the first draft since he was 21
in 1917. The Army units you mention were probably the Army Transportation
Corps. His records may be found at the Army Records Center on Page Avenue in
St.Louis, MO.
