    This is a dog tag stamped Clyde F Goode, Cpl, Co(?) 24th infantry, USA. The reverse is stamped with his serial number. The 24th infantry regiment was a Buffalo Soldier unit comprised of African American enlisted and white officers. They were assigned to General 'Blackjack' Pershing to secure the border from Pancho Villa's forces. All of this about about 6 miles and 103 years from where I'm sitting. Holding a piece of history.
    The 24th served with distinction. Hand salute, Corporal Goode.

    Yes, I actually live near Columbus, a small town 3 miles from the border that was once raided by Pancho Villa's men. Right next to the town is the site of the First Aero Squadron, the very first active military air unit. I believe the 24th may have bivouacked there.
