(3) The 339th Infantry Regiment soldier listed in the book "The American Expedition Fighting the Bolsheviki" by the name of "Martin, J.C." never existed. Recent research by Andrew Babicki has proven that the name of the Company E soldier accidently shot on 21 Oct 1918 was "Campbell, Martin J." [Sources: World War I Bonus claims card, found in the World War I Index, Special Collections Room, Library of Michigan, Lansing, MI; Olivet (College) "Optic", Vol.XXX no. 45, December 26, 1918; “Bolsheviks: the Russian War Memoir of PFC Donald Carey” (chapter 8, page 63)]

(4) Arthur Dargan's hometown has been provided by Mike Cox, whose wife is related to the Dargan family.

(5) Research by Neil Burns indicates that Pvt. Charles D. Gauch, HQ Co., 339th Inf. Reg. was likely killed in action on 29 Sept.1918, not 01 Oct 1918 as indicated in "The American Expedition Fighting the Bolsheviki" (compare pgs. 25 and 299).
