Chilson, formerly Battery B, 129th Field Artillery, you are advised that this office has no record of such award being made.

In the meantime, it is suggested that you communicate direct with the Commanding General, American Expeditionary Forces. Very truly yours, P.C. Harris The Adjutant General Per: WEC
