Here is a list of the Enlisted men of the 26th Cavalry in 1941. After the war an attempt was made to assemble all of the Cavalry personnel in one unit, Troop C, 1st Military Police Battalion. Those with asterisk were those who were assigned to it when they rejoined military control.  Those with check mark were known to be alive although they were not assigned with Co. C. - Felipe

I am attaching a list of Officers of the 26th Horse Cavalry (PS) in its last roster in December 1941 and what happened with them during the war. On January 10, 1942 when Colonel Clinton Pierce was promoted to Brigadier General, a reorganization was made and we picked up a Lt. Joseph Siciliano but I don't know what happened to him.  - Felipe
