* data from the CMH - The United States Army in World War I


This data should not be taken to mean base of origin. For example the 77th is more closely associated with Camp Upton. But it did have a minor presence at Camp Mills. Various Divisions and units had other home bases. The 41st a western states division considers its home base Camp Greene, North Carolina. It did spend a month and a half at Camp Mills. The assembly of the 41st was completed at Camp Mills. Camp Mills is considered the birth place of the 42nd Division. Also the units comprising the 42nd and 41st Division at Camp Mills were much greater than the units mentioned in the CMH listing.
