Museum has no information on William Kilgore, but 33rd US Volunteer Infantry mustered in at Fort Sam Houston in July 1899 before going overseas to the Philippines. Peyton March, Army Chief of Staff in WWI, served in this regiment.

How long did Kilgore remain in the Philippines? The Philippine Scouts were not authorized until October 8, 1901. If he departed that year, there would be almost no overlap.
